The Iceman

This is the Iceman in one of the many small villages in Cambodia, he rides around the villages delivering the much needed ice to the locals from his motorcycle and trailer, everyone has a plastic ice box in front of their home, which is great for us when we reach civilisation as we crunch the ice up and fill our drinks bottles, the temperature here is already in the mid 40’s so ice is extremely important to everyone, and keeping cool and hydrated whilst cycling in these extreme temperatures is paramount, otherwise you are facing heatstroke, when starting to show early signs of heatstroke in any situation, its very important to act fast, even faster when in remote locations, as it can result in death in a matter of a couple of hours.
