We leave Nathan, Bishkek and Kyrghzstan. We have to get back in Kazakhstan to get our Chinese visa. Cool, we'll take advantage to see some part of this country we hadn't the opportunity to visit last year. After about twenty kilometers we arrive at the border with Kazakhstan, the cross is easy because fortunately we lined up with the cars. Otherwise the pedestrian path, which is
caged between fences would had been a nightmare with the bikes. It would take at least a couple of hours.
The landscape is always him, Kazakhstan as we remembered it, steppe, just a little bit more grassy here. It's hot, but nothing compared to last August. First day we can do no more than 53 kilometers, and we are tired... and there wasn't even any uphill... chips... to long without cycling.
