After the hunger pains finally woke me I suited up and decided to rent a bike. Yes, you read that right a bicycle. So in 35 heat I sweat my way ...
... us around for 2 whole days for $70. He ended up being a great tour guide and took us everywhere. He even offered to drive us 5 hours to our next destination. Calm down Toe, calm down. The good news is, it's not raining! The bad news is, I'm still soaking but now it's from the consistent sauna these people call air. I think shvitzing is the correct term. When it's not 500 degrees of humidity, it's like riding Splash Mountain repeatedly (see what I did there? Disney world is ...
