Rashid to Sudan Border, 92 km
Getting through the afternoon’s high temperatures demands regular rest, shade and rehydration.
A “coke stop” can be a gas station or small store, but in Sudan is typically a roadside shack selling cell phone credits, biscuits and powdered milk. The roar of a nearby gas generator is a signal that they also offer cold drinks. These are often stacked inside a chest freezer located in the darkness at the back of the shack.
Today’s last riding day in Sudan was a hot, two “coke stop” effort. Lots of grassland and rolling hills.
