A Tiredness
Poor Country

May 21, 2016

Oppressive heat and unrelenting hills give us our first taste of what cycling in Chiapas is all about.


What happened…

Amanda writes: Today was pretty uneventful which was okay by me. I think there is a part of me that is excited about finishing Mexico and we’re on the home stretch now. At the same time I’m feeling a bit sluggish and can’t put my finger on it. Usually I enjoy tackling more mileage in a day but today just wasn’t one of them. Maybe it’s the heat. The last few times that we’ve slept in a tent, Andrew seems to be handling the heat okay and can fall asleep and yet I lie there in a pool of sweat. Literally a pool; my sleeping pad is wet, my sheets are wet and I can’t seem to cool down. It’s funny because when we set out on our trip we were concerned about Andrew handling the heat, not me. Oh well, maybe I’ll get better at it. And so because I seem to be struggling with the heat when we arrived at the hotel I didn’t mince my words when Andrew asked if we wanted to splurge for air conditioning. I didn’t care how much it cost; we were getting it.
