As you have read in previous posts, we’ve had many special encounters riding our bicycles throughout the world. We’ve also had a lot of fun writing about them for you. The stories we write are an attempt to broaden our writing skills while seeking out the style that will evolve into our own. For this entry we’ve decided to write in the style used by the ancient Greek philosopher, Plato. It is a dialogue between the culturequest team (Peter and Shahla – us). It takes place shortly after crossing into the USA from Mexico.
