Today, the 16.th of September, we managed to get up early despite of heavy rain and snowfall. After having a thin breakfast in the ice cold tent with water dripping down from the plafond into my neck, we had a surprisingly good cycling day. We managed to be on top of the daily pass at 14:00. We both were really wondering over the speed we cycled although we have had a bad sleep. Because the only thing that had changed since yesterday was the wind,(that now blew in our direction) we could only blame him for the successful climb. Even when going downhill the wind stayed with us and so we got to 90 km today, even more than we had to cycle to stay in our time-schedule.
In the afternoon the sun gave us visits more frequently and we even had the possibility to wash us in a crystal clear river. There I noticed that my left big toe has somehow not survived the cold mountains completely unharmed. Probably it has gotten to cold and now is painful infected. I hope it is better tomorrow again.
Right next to this river, a few kilometers more down the valley, we rose our tent and had eggs with rice for dinner.
Now I am lying in the tent, the noise of the river is so loud that I can’t hear anything else. It gives me the feeling of being deaf, it is somehow a relaxing feeling. Good night.
