Sunburn through the vents

long and winding road

This is a day late. Caceres from the border of Portugal. The hottest day so far. To keep cool we had to soak our t-shirts with water. They soon dried. At 3pm we had to pull over and take shade. I emptied a bottle of water over my head as I desperately tried to cool down. I was in serious danger of over-heating. Scott made use of his newly acquired SAS skill of discretley peeing whilst changing a tyre! The lesson of the day was hydration. Hydrate or dry. The heat gave me my 1st of numerous nose bleeds.
