Day 6

I got up righ after the sun showed on the horizon. Strange - there were no mosquitos at night. Ok, so I'm going to Voronezh (big and ugly) and take the direction to Saratov. I thought it's close and it is nearly 500km!! Damn.

It is very hot. I am on a diet - I consume thousands of snickers+sprite.


During the day it was even a bit too hot for riding so I made couple hours brake, during which I did my very special top secret exercises and then I went on.

Found a place to sleep at a gas station. I even had a security for only 50 rubles.


Distance: 506km

Day 7

I got up again before there was a sun on the horizon. It's going to be another boring day on the road. In the very morning it's a big pleasure to ride as there is no big heat. I pass Saratov, Samara etc. Road is boring like shit.


I am practicing my singing. I can't sing, but I want to learn it. Luckily no one can hear me while riding. I stopped in one restaurant and..


I slept again by the gas station. No tent, no shit like this.

Distance: 633km

Looks like a good trip. Are the Russian girls very accommodating to poles?

Also maybe I'm just not on board, what does the phrase "What a sulfur" mean? or where does this come from? maybe lost in translation

Cheers.

"What a sulfur" - in polish "ale siara" - means some kind of embarrassing.Idiom, i think, it came from very (seriously VERY) cheap wine, which has SO2 composed.
Can't buy one anymore.
