The plan for today was much exhausting than yesterday’s one and I was a bit scared to get it done.
The distance of nearly 80 kilometers wasn’t the challenge but there were some ups and downs with a main climb to an altitude of 400 meters. The road in the blazing sun.
But as so often by going the anxieties break away soon. And it was very interesting to drive through this arid landscape. Partly I felt like traveling the moon.
And then behind a little pass a fundamental and man-made change occurred: greenhouses. All of them white made of a special and transmissible film. In these dry brown land it looks strange.
The climb was quite easy and gave me a wonderful overview to this surreal landscape.
This area up to Aguilas seems to be an area nobody wants to be there. A national road – very less traffic. A highway – very very less traffic. Only people who lives here and didn’t find the courage to leave and people working here (greenhouse) you meet.
On my main climb – about 2 hours up and down – I met 2 cars and – of course – a convoy of 2 John Deer tractors 😉
