The End Of A Very Hot Week In Alexandra

... in more ways than one. For the first time this week, the temperature here was under 30 degrees. In fact I don't think it went above 25. The afternoon was cooler than the morning. That's what happens in New Zealand, especially South Island, when the Antarctic scowls in this direction.

Also it is the end of our week here. Tomorrow we move away to the coast where it should be much cooler. I have walked over 180 kms here in 7 days - actually in 6 days because on Monday we were mainly on the road here. I have to admit that it was very hard work and the thought of doing that every day for 10 weeks is daunting but surely I will not be doing it in such a heatwave?
