Our adventure on the Silk Road just started!
We left Bucharest at 10.30 a.m, having all kinds of feelings..
From all our friends only Geo showed up. We knew we didn’t have too many friends, able to understand what we were going to do, besides Geo was aware of the plan a long time ago.
A few passers congratulated us, they heard about the cycle trip at Radio Guerrilla, a gentleman, named Cristian Lupu, came specially for us and accompanied us for a while on his bike, and Milena was in the area. As it was normal, Silvia’s parents also accompanied us.
Getting out of Bucharest: traffic, pollution, dust.. and continued like that until Giurgiu. The worst road to cycle, I don’t understand how some people are “training” on this road. Also very hot, we dehydrated and got sun burned on our hands.
Finally we reached Basarbovo after 94 km of pedal. We set the tent near some Romanians who have an old and deaf dog but who likes chocolate and wanted to taste some from us.
