Today was a standard cycling day. Strong sidewinds and good roads carried us 95 km further. We met a group of Germans who had travelled from near Leipzig
(sorry guys, I don’t remember the name of your village anymore, correct me and I’ll correct this blogpost;0))
to Omsk and back in 4 weeks. A huge trip with more than 10000 km by car. We had a really nice chat about our Anp. their trip. They had build a lot of handy stuff on their cars which really impressed me. Meeting creative people on the way can make my day:0). And as if having someone other than Paul to talk to in german wasn’t enough , they gave us sparkling water and 4 snickers as a present, it was Christmas, birthday and Easter at one day. To you:
Thank you again, we didn’t have to eat grasshoppers today;0).
When I saw the truck I wished I never had turned my head to it’s direction. A horrible accident was right in front of us. A truck had hit another truck frontal and what was left of the both drivers-cabins was not much. We arrived at the scene after everything already had been ” cleaned up” but the consequences were still obvious. As happy as I was before about meeting some Germans in 2 month time, as sad I was now. Paul and I decided to not talk for a while. Digesting such a view is sometimes better in quietness.
We knew already by all the crosses at the side of the street that the day would come when we see something that cruel. Still you can never be prepared. the only thing we can do is drive even more carful than we did already.
” I can’t go that fast”, Paul screamed after me. “I have a headache and my legs hurt”
Shit, I thought, the same symptoms that I had before my cold. So we decided to stop early and set up the Tent in the middle of the prairie. We ate the pirogas we had left from lunch, cocked a delicious potato-carrot-saussage- garlic-cream- meal and Paul went to bed. Now I am still awake, I listen to the animals outside the tent eating our dinner- rests. I do not mind as long as they let their noses out of our breakfast. Enjoy your dinner, unknown beasts.
