Stage 1
13-May-2012 01:32:51 AM [(GMT+01:00) Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Paris]

We started at 7am...I wasup quite early and caught an incredible sunrise...being in a canyon the canyon walls were pitch black...it looked like someone torn off the bootom half the sky.  Very hot day!  We covered 40km today...4 types of sand...soft, softer, softest...and uphill and soft.  There was a brutal climb that never seemed to end as we climbed back up to 1000mtr.  I got in by 1pm and have had a long afternoon here in camp...drinking and eating evreything in sight.  Glad to report no blisters...but my backpack has rubbed a layer of skin off my back...i have taped it up and added a layer of adhesive...now I hope it comes off at the end of the race.  All is good...and by the way...I forgot to mention that I did find the best shawarma in Amman...Shawarma Reem on the 3rd circle...curbside dining at its best...I could use a few of those now.  Thinking ofyou both Kira and Maxine!

Hi Fitz,\\ This is Guido. We never actually met or maybe just once. I went to school with Gonzalo and I thought he too was participating in the race. I thought I saw his name registered somewhere. I am in Amman and if you have the time, give me a call. Would love to catch up. You can reach me on: 0777 955 559
