Day 6: Ural Mountains & Chelyabinsk - 108 Days Across Eurasia by Martins Ate

After we spent a night at the Ural Mountains by some lake with a crystal clear water, we moved towards Chelljabinsk which now was only about 100 km from us. I spent morning swimming and washing myself up in a lake.

On our way we stopped at the road cafe (rigalnik) to have breakfast and tea with lemon. I used my ginger which I took from Brussels to help my stomach get rid of all the unformulated meals it had since I left home.

While we had a breakfast local TV channel at the cafeteria displayed weather news which made me a bit worried. The cities I'm heading towards to - like Omsk, Kemerovo, Novosibirsk - temperature is almost twice less than I expected: only + 12; + 14 degrees Celsius during the daytime which means that I might experience weather I'm not prepared for at all. The hot Moscow's weather is gone. And I found out that my tent actually has a floor and it made me so happy.

The Sun is not so hot anymore behind the Ural mountains and everybody can feel it. Instead of yesterdays +37 we have only + 24 and its already 4:30 PM.

My new friends are very keen to me and we have a lots of a great chat, but this is the last day with them together as after about 500-600 kilometers I'm moving towards North. The round-trip might take for me at least two days as I need to go by the country roads about 400 km until next big city - Omsk, 650 km from Novosibirsk.

Currently I'm already in the region of Siberia. I feel amazed and a bit scared from the possibility of my body to resist the cold for next few weeks. I have only one pair of jeans with me. But mostly I feel alright and until now I haven't regretted I moved towards this unknown experience. I pray. I guess only God can sort my trip in most attractive, interesting and less damaging way.

Are you thinking about that next move in future technology just dont know where to start?
