Because of the hour change I left quite late, at 7:30, but as it was a normal day there was nothing to worry about. It is quite hot, aproaching 40 degrees at 9 AM, and it will stay at 40 and above throughout the day. The scenery is the same I saw for the last 500 km, and the road also – going up and down like a rollercoaster, which is quite annoying for long distances as it is breaking your rhytm.
I pedal theough the heat, and before three I reach Vista Alegre do Abunã, but when I am about to enter the village I realize I have a flat tyre in the back. I replace the tube, and after finding a hostel and taking a shower I reward myself with dinner and an ice-cold Itaipava.
