Shivering in Sihui, Guangdong - 5,000 years of history - CycleBlaze

Shivering in Sihui, Guangdong

I headed out at 8. At the 20 km mark, the rain returned. While I sat it out, I got so cold that I put on an additional 2 shirts, my jacket and my long pants.

I contemplated spending a few weeks in Guangzhou waiting for spring to arrive. But Southern China gets more rain in spring.

So I pressed on. After a long lunch and few kilometres, I felt warm enough to remove my extra clothes.

At twilight I was in a rural area without any hotels. So I had to push on to Sihui. When I checked into the hotel, I was so cold and wet that I jogged on the spot while reception checked me in.

Most roads have shoulders, but when they don't, pedestrians walk leisurely on the road.

The hot, wet tires and the high humidity causes small clouds around some trucks.

I don't know why the trees are planted and supported skew.

One of the few roads without proper drainage. A minute later a truck came by and splashed me completely.
