I dropped 1000m today to a warm, sunny place. Kids were swimming in the river. People were drinking beer on terraces on the river shore in the town. Today I just felt tired. My friend the headwind was back, and this evening I was informed there’s 100km of roadworks ahead. Tired.

I need to cycle 100km each day to get to Shangri La in time to extend my Chinese visa. There are other solutions, but, it would be good to get there in time by bike. 100km is fine in usual conditions. The Tibetan Plateau is good at throwing up non-normal conditions. This is all making me tired.

The valley was beautiful. Here are some photos.

    What a lovely little village. I think the headwind is not a ‘friend’ but a nemesis!
