Muy lejos todavía 

Thursday I met another bike traveler, the first I’ve encountered since Guadalajara. He is from Poland and was heading the other way. He said it is probably a month to Merida, which is longer than I was planning but makes sense at this point. 

I stopped Thursday night in Nochixtlán, slept in the municipal building. Someone I met told me insistently it was only a four hour ride into Oaxaca, which I refused to believe, but I went on the autopista, which may be cheating-made the ride much easier than I expected, and I think I made it in five hours. 

I tried covering my face yesterday and today which is not the worst. I stop ever so often to rewet the cloth. 
It occasionally occurs to me that I may not be cut out for biking long distances in hot places. I made it to Oaxaca yesterday and will take a couple days off here… There may be some busing in my future.

    Yeah, not everyone is cut out for riding long distances with hot temperatures. But it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the short rides. 🙂
