A week of recovery

You might have noticed how the activity on the blog has suddenly stopped for the past week. Well, this has a reason!

That's how I looked at this time on Thursday last week, injured, bloody, sad and hurt...

Exactly one week ago, I had an accident while biking my way to work (as I do everyday). That morning the floor was wet and one of my tires is pratically slick, so while going quite fast downhill I got distracted, tried to break with one hand only and I lost control of the bike and fell quite hard. I had 16 stitches on my chin which I still have (hopefully tomorrow they will be removed), 4 broken teeth (that I know as of now because every day I find a new one...) and multiple abrasions on hands. I'm recovering quite well but seems like I will be member of a dentist club or something because of all the visits I will have to pay them...

But always look on the brightside! It could have been much worse. So I'm happy because I'm alright and here's the proof!

Much better with this bagpipe courtesy of David Rodriguez (Karaikal) XD

The fact that I am writing these lines means that I am much better now. I will be back in action very soon!

Hombre! Que esas manos valen su precio en oro! que te mejores rápido y vuelvas a coger la bici como un loco... yo no aprendí nada de mis 2 accidentes de bici, aunque fueron mucho más leves. Así que ya sabes, a cuidarse macho. Vemos!

Nice!
