After a power breakfast with Etimar, we jumped on the bikes and began our journey. We followed the highway until the tarmac turned into clay, dirt and sand.
|The dangerous section, which was actually ok|
It was a long and demanding ride. Scott would fall one more time today making an elevation change from sandy road to clay but again, no injuries, just a broken fog lamp bracket – again duct tape to the rescue.
|HJ's left panier came loose and jumped off his bike - all ok|
|We met a few russians on the way, nice guys!|
We arrived into Beyneu in the late afternoon to the one hotel in the center. It was a comfortable and clean place (AHTA) but our room had no shower. We asked the lady for a shower and she said no. We asked again and maybe she could smell us, they she said ok. She took us to another room and showed us the shower.
|Here is where we stayed in Beyneu|
The hotel had a Kafe inside so we had dinner there, meeting some nice guys who had stopped by to have a few beers.
|The crew of guys at the hotel...it was beer thirty|
Tomorrow’s ride would be a long one, we would be heading towards the Uzbekistan boarder…
