I left Aralsk with mild temperatures and a gentle breeze. It wasn't as cold as I expected. That would soon change. Isn't there not one day I can say "This was perfect" ? There is always a catch. Today it was the weather again. It made me think, "Why am I doing this?" 500 km through freezing rain and heavy crosswinds, temps down to 5°C. I had to re-think my whole dressing procedure, which eventually turned out fine. Well, a wee bit better.
So cold I didn't think of taking snaps...
I ended the day in a sauna and swimming pool. For good reasons.
