Hot pools in the desert-Expedition Dust day 84

Being here is making me home sick. I got into Douhousiey camp a bit late last night and didn’t have a chance to soak my body before bed, so today was my day! This is the first proper water hole I have seen since I left the west coast and this one happens to be 37• degrees. Just what my sore achy body needs.

Just after ten I headed down to the spring, took my clothes off and made my way down the steps and into the natural hot water. I couldn’t believe how good it felt on my body,  I floated around eventually settling into a spot under some trees. I started feeling something on my back then my legs then my feet! I looked at my body and spotted hundreds of little tiny fish that had come together and were nibbling at my skin.

It felt strange and tickly.
