I set off in the dark but today even before sunrise the wind is very strong. After 50 km I reach a stretch of desert where the wind almost blows me off the road. I averaged 17 km/h when I reach Trujillo at noon. It’s a long and annoying way through the city as no one respects any traffic laws. On the bright side, it is sheltered from the wind. After a few more hours against the wind I reach a small town where I stay for the night. Want to set off at 3 am tomorrow as the wind will be less.
