Carrie had a flat in the morning, and then we had a day of quiet roads and lots of rolling hills, and we are right back to feeling tired.
Of course riding for over two weeks in a sauna might have something to do with it. This entire country is hot, 30 C more or less, with humidity of maybe 80 -100%. My shirt has white salt marks after three days of wearing, and is wet a lot of the time. And people CHOOSE to live here. Go figure. 🙂
There are some beautiful homes, in fact there are lots of them. Carrie’s question is “Why here? Why is it HERE?”
Apparently in the South you are nobody until you throw up some white columns out by the front door.
But whoever you are, everybody we have talked to, white and black, well off and poor, all have tried to help us out and make us feel at home. So we feel pretty confident striking out into the unknown each day.
All we think about is the day’s route, distance, food, water, where to stay, and sleep. So you can see why we like it a lot. 🙂
