Sick or Not the Kilometers Must Go On - 105 kilometers YongShou -- Fri, Jul 22, 2005 Probably one of the hardest days of the trip. Biking when your body refuses to accept any liquids (let alone food) that you give it is a difficult task. I drank plenty of water but it all sat in my stomach. By noon, I was having a really rough time and we had only covered 50 kilometers.
But luckily sometime around 1pm the Cipro kicked in and did a number on what ever has been tormenting me for the past four days. The most amazing feeling having your stomach drain into your body and starting to feel sweat, your bladder fill, and your mouth become wet again. I still hadn't really eaten and was pretty weak, but that didn't mean I didn't get excited when I saw some hills.
I am now in YongShou and am going to take it easy tonight. We have some tough terrain ahead of us before we get to Lanzhou.
