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.
