Volcan Chimborazo

Due to the earth's equatorial bulge the peak of Chimborazo (6,310m) is the point furthest from the center of the earth. In an effort to work off my own equatorial bulge I went for a cycle ride around it. A cup of coca leaf tea at 5,000m to help with the altitude then a 3 hour ride around the mountain to a village for a lunch of llama meat and potatoes.
