Headwind. But also good road surface. We left early today and cycled down the Oodnadatta track. I have never seen it so green. From little rises, the landscape looks like endless fields of grass with cows grazing. From close-up it is prickly thin grasses blowing in the wind. The desert in bloom.

When there is no wind there are zillions of flies. We had lunch out of the wind behind a little shed next to a communications tower. The flies were extremely friendly, and also glad to be out of the wind.

We are camping in a dry creek-bed. A lovely spot with lots of wood for a lovely fire. Tomorrow Oodnadatta.
