my bike was so happy we're going home that he pissed a little from the carburetor ;-)


ok, now listen to my story..
i thought it's been a long time since i destroyed my last carimate..
so guess what..
i lost it!!!!!!!
and i don't know when, why or how..
either i forgot to pack it in the morning or i lost it..
later on i realized it's already late so i ran into a shop with food, told them my sad hearttouching story and asked them to sell me their carpet, materac or whatever.. and they sold it to me ;-)
so this is my new bed:

there are still some detours in KAZ but the road is now much better than it was 2 weeks ago..


i had just 5 days to cross KAZ if you don't wanna go to migration something and register yourself.. and guess what.. i arrived to the border at 11:35PM
but KAZ was cool..


ok, i already spent here 3 hours.. will write more next time

thank you for watching!! ;-)

Zandesiro: you can do it on a chopper ;-) no problem on a varadero..



now another story full of sulfur..
so i am in russia.. i went to the city, found a bank and want to exchange KAZ money to rubels.. lady said "we don't exchange tenge, only usd or euro".. i went to another bank: "we don't exchange tenge"..
i ask her where can i exchange my tenge? "i don't know, only in Mockba"

wtf?! so i have my money to come back home in currency that no one wants to accept here..

i told my heart touching story to a mechanic (what a stupid idea) that i met on the road.. he said "you see this market? talk to its owner, he visits KAZ very often"

so couple moments later i had my wallet full of rubels ;-)
