I set off with Dimitry but after two km speed away. The road climbs for 30km up the beautiful slopes of Mount Kenya. At noon I reach Nanyuki and share a quick lunch with Adele who works as a pilot there. We met last year when I was riding in Canada and she then hosted me when I passed her place during Panamerica Solo. Such a small world and I hole that next time I have more time than during a record ride.
After lunch I pass a big sign annoincing the equator. Its motivating as from now on days will become longer which makes my riding easier. I push further towards the outskirts of Nairobi. Just 10 km before the hotel a tropical thunderstorm comes with hailing and strong winds that make me struggle to keep the bike straight. Freezing I arrive at the hotel.
