- Halfway Point of World Run!!!
Three km from the finish I rounded 13 000km and thus are `homebound` from
now on. A sweet thought as I really miss family and friends by now. Only
about 11 months to that if things goes well ;-)
I had my second day of tent-accommodation as I put up the tent on the
shore of the big Lake Biwa. One of largest lakes Japans largest lakes with
a diameter of about 200km.
I tried to get in contact with Kazuka after finish as we have a planned
rendezvous with her and Alexander tomorrow after finish. AND I don?t have
maps for the next part of the course as they are working on them together
with other Japan contacts. So the state of things is that if I don?t make
the finish point get contact then I run out of maps and direction by
evening tomorrow. Straight and plain.
A bit of a horror to think of, as I by now have given up asking direction
or help from the Japanese people I meet.
