Sand and more sand
14-May-2012 07:07:57 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

I got through stage two relativelu unscathed, I think the strategu  of yesterday paid off but I am hurtingnow.

I havem first ever blood blister from m shoes and its a duzi people - the medicaltent helped me drain it and plaster up hoping it holds.

My shoulders are taking a beating here and i happily flying above mount myprodol at the moment.

the terraintodaywas shocking - loose sand that made some secttions barely walkable but i heldup mentally and phsically up until the very end where i just wanted to say wtf and start walking,we had cloud cover for the greater section of the morning, but whenthe sunhit, it did so with a vengeance.

The wind is picking up in camp now, theres a little bit of a sandstorm at the moment.

 

THanks so much for all the emails and support,its making a huge  difference here andits really been ann inspiration.

Lots ofhugs from the Wadi Rum.
