I can’t believe it’s mid-July and today was the first time this year that I went swimming. I set out to find a good swimming-spot around 11am this morning, upon arriving to my destination (after a 25 minute trek in the heat and melting away half my body weight) I realized the lake I had in mind wasn’t ideal for swimming, so I kept on walking. After a total of 45 minutes of walking, buckets of sweat and a near fainting experience I arrived at the second lake which I knew was swimming material. I dove right in. And it was sweet!
