Again we anticipated a very hot and tiring day so we started off at 4 a.m. but had reached our destination before the afternoon sun hit us. Luckily the hotel we stayed at was bang on the highway so we didn't have to go into the city and cycle on the crowded streets. The rooms that were given to us were amazing also because it had air conditioning which is a luxury we rarely enjoy!! Today the entire team got together and cleaned all the cycles to ensure we have no problems while riding the last couple of days. In the evening Rotarian Mr. Karthik and his team joined us at the hotel along with the press. Today Bimla and Deepa have joined us after having left us at Bhubhaneshwar and so has a new member, Dr. Manjushri Waikar from Nagpur.
the stupendous morning sky..
the girls make the best of any opportunity and take a nap, be it next to the toll booth on the highway.
