Well after a more or less total lack of chickens so far in China, whether in food or otherwise, there seems to be a disproportionate amount of chooks in this part of China. Too bad for them.
The day started well, my body feeling strong. I was once again blown away by the awesome skating conditions in China. Smooth roads, lack of traffic, and awesome scenery.
Rice fields begging to be harvested.
The stoke unfortunately did not last for long today though, and after lunch I hit a wall. I felt hungry and fatigued despite the midday meal. I would say it had something to do with the heat. The midday sun is brutal here.
I called an early stop to the day in Shinyang at 2pm.
