Malawi. Also known as Hot & Humid land. Heat and humidity that stick, also at night. “As if I was sleeping in a sweatbox” was a much heard phrase during breakfast. And after it started thundering somewhere during the night and I closed the rainfly of my tent, it indeed felt like a sweatbox. No more fresh air. The rain didn’t come though… Instead, the thunderclouds allowed for a spectacular sunrise over the lake…
So I finished todays ride in a little over 4 hours. Not sure what went wrong here. Maybe my e
xpectations were off. No easy days on the Tour d’Afrique. Maybe it were the heat and the humidity. Maybe I’m just tired. In any case I’ll have one and a half day to recover. Tomorrow we have a rest day, here at beautifull Chitimba beach at the shore of lake Malawi! I’m looking forward to a lazy day. I’m in need of one 🙂
Wow I’m just so amazed that you can see the mountains on the other side of the lake, some 50k away… and the thundercloud just kept on flashing…
