It has been 1 week since I departed Almaty. It definitely seems much longer; since I have traveled about 4100km. I must admit that I do not like having to travel every day. At least for this many days and kilometers in a row. I am looking forward to being able to rest a bit once I get into Kiev and beyond.

I stayed in Almaty for 5 nights with my gracious hostess, Gulshat (thanks again Gulshat!). I needed to a minor tune up on the bike and change the rear tire. After all complete, it was time to hit the road back to Europe. In the last 6 days I have covered about 3400km. It is a huge distance, but then again, Kazakhstan is a huge country, the majority of it seeming to be a desert-steppe landscape.
