Sore throat

Wej woke up with a common cold and a sore throat yesterday morning. Instead of continuing cycling we decided to stay two days to let her get better. This means we are slightly behind the schedule which doesn’t really matter at all. The only thing we need to worry about timewise is the validity of our chinese visas and where and when to extend them.

It feels very much like end of summer here in Aksu. The sky is grey, it is windy (tailwind…) and not more than maybe 20-22 degrees which feels rather cold in the strong wind.

Our next stop will be in the city of Kuqa which is 250 km from here. We hope to be able to ride there in two days.

Meanwhile, enjoy these pictures from the very nice hotel we have been staying at.

And this is the room. Two double beds and a desk to work at. We couldn't have asked for more.... :-)

    Synd om dig Wej, men så skönt att ni är så kloka.

      Wejs hals är bättre, men nu börjar min ge sig till känna istället.

      Hi Kaz,
      Nice to know that you follow us on the blog 🙂

      Yes – the air here and in the rest of central asia is very dry. When we wash our clothes they usually dry overnight in the room and if we put some wet clothes on our bikes outside the bags they will dry very quickly. Maybe this dry air has something to do with the sore throat, but then it is strange that it has not happened earlier…

      Take care,

      Joakim
