Tough but great day today! 124k on the dirt road, which just takes a lot of energy. Our roads are heavily corrugated and there is a lot of loose sand, making progress quite slow. I even had a little tumble off my bike. My front wheel got stuck in the sand amd I didn’t unclip fast enough and fell over. I scratched my knee a bit but no other damage 🙂 I guess it just had to happen at some point during the tour. As long as it doesn’t get any worse then this I’m okay with it :-). Next to all this I didn’t sleep to well again last night. My nose just fills up with stuff, keeping me awake, which is not ideal after spending a long day in the saddle.
Starting the day with a great sunrise!
Tough roads though…
Oryx in Namibia, not my picture though… it was to fast for that…

My bike loves the dirt!
Ending the day in Solitaire
Not much here though 🙂
A rainbow in a dry place like this must be pretty special…
Ending the day with a great sunset!
