TdA Stage 81. Simple Life.

114km. Windhoek to Game Reserve.

We are off the pavement again and out of the flat landscape that has defined the better part of the last two weeks. Going out of Windhoek, signs of civilization quickly disappeared and we were riding through beautiful, unspoiled landscapes.

A heavy rain storm last night, combined with newspaper headlines describing the abnormally high rainfall in the region over the last few months, had me a little anxious about the condition of the dirt road. But my anxiety was for nothing as the weather today was perfect and the dirt road was in mostly good condition.

I feel as though I should have a preference for the riding that we have done through villages and populated areas. Yes, it is nice to see how people live in different places and do 'cultural things'. But, truth be told, I enjoyed today's ride a lot and I'm looking forward to the coming rides as we head in to more and more desolate areas. I really love these places that are free of development.

Clean. Quiet. Calm. Life becomes so simple.
