The gate of the police station is closed at 5am and I lift my bike across the fence. No easy task getting across with cycling shoes. All morning I fight a strong headwind and reach Gaborone at noon. Its a surprisingly modern city that looks very similar to most midsized US cities. In the evening the wind gets stronger and I ride with 18kmh in the flat until I find a guesthouse at sunset. 50 km from South Africa.
