The day of the word 'help'.
After an ordinary day of riding along the river, with this interesting road-sign in Rosenheim which indicates the way for the slow Inn , CRACK! The wheel-hub of Marco's bike is broken. No problem, evening is not far and we proceed walking to reach the next camping, which is near Wasserburg, along the coast of Soyen lake. A man meets us along the street and helps very much: tomorrow her wife will carry with her car the broken bike and Marco to a mechanician! That man will look for the map to find the mechanician; and will look for the train timetable too, so that Marco will reach us by train. Thank you very much!
He was the owner of Soyen camping, where we was going. Nice place around the lake. Happy tourists laugh till late in the evening, and make us very happy too, even if we understand nothing of their language.

Besides, in Rosenheim center the Inn Cycle Path was under construction, and indications was not so clear; but a local biker helped us to find the way. Thank you very much, too!
