The day was again monotone – cattle ranches left and right. What a change from the lush jungle in Bolivia or from the diversity of Peru!
I met early morning a cowboy crew who were moving some hundred or more cattle.
Although cloudy, from 10 AM the temperature reached 40°C and it stayed like this throught the day. As I had to pedal 100 km, I had a lot of time to think. The day before I looked at the map of Brasil, and was struck by the huge distance I have to cover. Today I checked my GPS, and there are a bit more than 4,000 kilometers to São Paulo. All this, combined with the heat, with being in a totally new country, with a new language, made me think if I will have the strength to reach the Atlantic coast.
