14/02/11 – really getting bored of the desert roads now.

I wake this morning with a dodgy stomach –must have been the Dayr Az Zawr kebabs from yesterday. I pack up gingerly and get on the road, only to be confronted with head winds and rain – not a good start to the day.

The road drags on annnnddd oonnnnnn…. So dull. Just a straight line. It wasn’t so bad with a tailwind and some sun. A headwind, dodgy stomach and rain have wiped my enjoyment of these straight roads clean off the map. The day is slow and boring, and frustrating. The desert subsides to fields and small agricultural villages which greatly reduce the stealth camping opportunities. I eventually find another half built cattle shed just off the road, and wait until there is no traffic and quickly dive in it. I manage to get in there undiscovered, and enjoy a rosy sunset as the rain subsides after a long, wet and boring ass day.
