Riding Along the Qaidam Basin!

Another easy ride today, we started very late as it was raining early morning. We only departed from Wulan after lunch, at around 1.45. Very easy ride, we rode at around 25-30km per hour as it was flatroad and the wind was blowing on our direction, pushing us towards Delingha, the next town that we’re heading. My meter computer doesnt work now, as the battery died. So was just guessing, we rode only 4 hours today, and i think we covered somewhere around 60km or more today. We were riding fast as it was easy. The weather was hot today, at around 27-30 celcius. Easy for us, as Im from KL and Nancy from Guangzhou. We had no problem riding under the hot sun.

Camping in the middle of the desert
We stopped cycling  at around 6.30pm as we found a good place to camp. We then setup our tents, ate dinner and enjoyed coffee together while waiting for the sunset. Nancy then took a nap as she was tired and i sat outside my tent enjoying the magnificent view of the sunset in the desert. I felt so good and peaceful. Listening to my ipod while watching the incredible view with my own 2 eyes, Im really living my dream now. Far away from the tension city life, far from the noise of the heavy traffic back in KL, far from pollution and the acidic rain. I then woke Nancy up, to let her enjoy the sunset view too. She then went back to her tent to sleep early, while me writing this blog inside my tent. Tomorrow is another easy ride to Delingha, maybe some 30km away from here, as my meter computer isnt working now.
