Flag of Turkey  , Edirne,
Friday, August 10, 2012

Today was hot - big surprise. My second destination in Turkey is not much to talk about. It is a smaller city but is very badly organized and messy. Not much I like about the place, except leaving the next day as one more stop closer to the final destination. Don't get me wrong it is no Slatina but still not much to talk about.

There was a bit of climbing today. It wasn't so bad because I was finished by 2:30 in the afternoon and avoid the heat for most of the day. It was still hot though and when I stopped at a gas station not too far from the end I think I caught some locals attention when I chugged two powerades in a few seconds.

I had another flat today but I went through the tire attentively and found the metal spike causing the problem However I did not have another 25mm tube so I switched to my old 23 road tires that I brought as back ups.

There were so many street cats around and they all looked so hungry and hot. I wanted to feed them all but that was just wishful thinking. I went to an Internet cafe and then straight to bed.
