At altitude I lost my appetite. Today I lost my appetite due to the heat. The contrast in climate is spectacular. Today was back to the ritual of having a 3 hour afternoon sleep. For the heat, and relief from the boredom of the straight road through hot farmland.

We cycled through melon land today. Everyone was selling watermelons, and some were also selling rock melons. Often there were stretches of road with sellers on both sides, sleeping on couch sofas unter the trees or under little verandah lean-tos.

We are now in the mountains again – at least there are mountains around us, and we will climb slowly now following the valley. I’m looking forward to gaining some altitude and losing some heat.
