Today we had our first early-morning stage and enjoyed a beautifull silent
sunrise on the road - and more comfortable temperatures than the 25 to
30C. in the the last days.
But instead we've got a new thing to keep us busy: the mosquitoes...
They are basking in the almost tropical temperatures, and having the time
of their life - 4 "ultrarunner meals" served promtly every day ;-)
Fortunately we have a very good and mosquito free accomodation at the home
of Matvei, while we are running near Omsk(Rachenka drive us there every
day after the finish).
Matvei is a very friendly host that cares good for us; but he is also a
very experiensed ultrarunner!
After todays finish he forexample showed us a video from one of his 4 days
Kaukasus mountain race participations: 1. day a 42km. to the beginning of
