Day two and we are feeling good. We had an early start from Zhenzezhen to try and escape the heat. However, today was "re si le" which means extremely hot! We have been keeping hydrated and eating healthy and our main source of fuel has been watermelon.
I believe between myself and Ho Young we ate two watermelons each to keep moving through the heat.... The first part of our day we made our way to Huzhou and then headed into the mountains towards Yixing. We have cycled 220 km thus far, just 4000 km to go....
My trailer is losing weight slowly as we made pit stops in many communities. We came across many wonderful children and youth throughout our travels today. There were a few occasions that the children were hesitant to approach me... I am guessing it is because to them I look like "Chewbacca" on wheels. However, the children were enjoying the privilege to play and it was nice to witness their energy and happiness. Tomorrow we are heading to Lishui...jiayou!
Zong family who were very kind and invited us for some tea.
The children of the Yuan family were very excited for receiving a new soccer ball and frisbee.
This kid was going crazy with his new ball.
