Today was tough and really hot. After a relaxed breakfast and some catching up with Torge and Nina, I left around 10 am heading East. It became hot pretty quickly and for a long time the landscape was flat or rolling hills without a chance of shadow.
Eastern Saxonia is pretty rural for the most part. There is not much industry or big business to make much of a living. There are some coal mines and a lot of lakes as a result of that. Some villages really were not looking that inspiring to me. Even in summer.
After 60km I finally reached the Elbe valley in Riesa. There is some metal industry here which means work for people.
After being at the Elbe, things got a little easier. Around 18:30, I reached my camping site next to Meissen.
This time, it is a very peaceful place. Time to cook some dinner 😉
