I am nearly back to normal. Actually, I don’t really know about that. I am changing so much I don’t really know what normal is. But my headache is almost entirely gone. I got pretty hungry today as I only passed Muslim communities which had no food on offer. I survived on my stash of Oreo biscuits and peanuts until I was about 20km from Pekan, where I came across roadside stalls selling pineapples. It was like finding gold and I devoured one in a hurry. The ride was fairly unremarkable. At times the coast was within view. At times I passed horrible smells I couldn’t identify. I had expected to bump into two German girls cycling southwards (a guy told me he had passed them about 50km away) but I didn’t see them anywhere.
