We were met at the 20km point by a delegation from our finish city,
Novokigenginsk, who in Byrytian tradition offered us fresh warm milk from
a small cup and a white silk band - the symbols of purity & friendship.

And friendly they were indeed !!

They had heard rumours of our little team (we have not had phone/mobile
contact several days due to running on a very secondary, but shorter,
road). So the administration, the sport committee leader and the local
journalist and a former wrestling champion set out to find us !

Driving up & down the stone covered Byrytian trail they found us and from
then on followed us the rest of the day, eager to help and cheering us up
with their smiles :-)

- And this was in fact much needed as we since running in the higher
altitude are beginning to feel problems with recovering; putting us in an
'all day exhaustion' that borders indifference/numbness. (more about this

The delegation, however, had arranged prime hotel accommodation, gifts,
food - and even a picnic with portable kitchen & hot dishes at a
riverbank, for us.

- later, I (J.) had a memorial table tennis match with the city mayor :-)

We were (and are) tired; very much; but we should not in a long time
forget our friends from Novokigenginsk !!! Friends like you we carry with
us in every step we take :-)
