Hilltop Temples and Forest Shade. An early morning mist hung n the air when Bobby hit the road. As the sun rose, the mist hung low and the view as he walked past a hilltop temple was truly lovely. Small mountains in the distance told us to expect a sloping road further ahead. Although very hot, the open fields and lakes on either side brought with them a cooling breeze. Rahim expertly angled the Walkmobile out of the sunlight during the midday break. I had previously arranged for Anand to meet us with more Saksham's. This proved to be and nice surprise for Bobby and cheered him up no end. The forest started just as the sun was at its hottest but being directly overhead, the trees lining the road could not provide shelter from the relentless heat. Bobby donned his wet head towel to keep cool. Signs kept reminding us that we were in a location that most people pass through locked away safely in the vehicles. We chuckled as we walked when I joked that Bobby would be a tiger's Happy Meal and I would be a Super-size. For the next break, Rahim found a good rare spot and parked tightly under a tree which provided us with the shade we so desired. By the end of the day, Bobby had covered 25km and we had passed my marker which was the village of Pauni. Tomorrow, the aim was for us to reach Khawasa and I had been speaking to some Saksham's there ahead of our arrival. We had been promised a relaxing stay. I went to sleep craving McDonald's.
