Cycling through Clouds in Central Asia: An Easy Ride; Today:119 km; Total: 204 km

May 9, 2014
I woke up at six to a somewhat foggy morning. I went to the edge of the hill and enjoyed the
picturesque scenery. Then I went back to sleep!
We left the camping spot at 9:30. At about noon, an old linesman waved us to stop and invited us for some tea. He was 65; to impress us, he did 10 push-ups on his three fingers! With tea, he offered us what he had--bread. There were some other guys too. They all were very funny.

The scenery got more and more beautiful. It rained a little bit. At about 5, we kept an eye open for a possible camping spot. After an hour of looking, frustratedly, we rode our bikes into a village and looked for a place. We finally found one. It was very hot then, and we both were sweating terribly. It was too bad that there was no water near our spot. We needed a wash very badly. When we were cooking, a guy showed up and said that he was the owner of the place. It didn't take us long to make friends with him and ask for some water to wash ourselves. After taking a shower with two litters of water, we had our super dinner (rice, potato, carrot, onion, tuna, and some kind of fortified fat that Kaveh had prepared for my trip).
