Day 249 (China): km marker 468 on G310 - Dangshan (15,000km & and a Pretzel dream)

daily distance: 143km
total distance: 15,099km
riding time: 7h 

Tonight was a great dream … Pretzels and Nutella. Oh my goodness, that will one of the first things I will eat when I get back to Dland. My father squirms at the thought I am sure, but hey …

This was a long day again, during which not much did happen. I passed this mark

then this …

and also this …

It is flat country with a whole bunch garbage unfortunately strewn all over the place. It seems like the environment is a good pit for pretty much anything you can come up with in your head.

I am pretty focused on finishing up now though the long days seem to be catching up with me quite a bit now. Today was no exception. It was much longer than I had wanted it to be and I just hope that the body holds up somehow. As I am writing this in Dangshan (pretty gruesome town with a pretty gruesome hotel - the bathroom in the only room with a shower was a definite no-go), I am feeling pretty out of it and not well at all.

by the time you moderate this, you might be done with your trip. The distances you are covering just got worse and worse. Hang in there. I am going to miss following you. You might wish the end now. Soon you will wish you were still out there.

completely agreed with you, antoinette - in a few days i will be longing for the days in the tent and on the bike.
