Good morning Morning We are in Nepal We arrived three days ago In Nepal We are on the way to Kathmandu We woke up early Because it’s about 50km to Kathmandu And around 1000 meter in height? Yeah, around 1000m And we would like to arrive in Kathmandu today So, it’s 5:45 A.M. now It’s still dark We have our studio lights here And Yeah, because of that… We have… And we are also tired I’m quite okay I don’t remember what i wanted to say So… 50km! 1000m in height, Kathmandu It will be a wild day i think We are still in the middle of nature now There are some nice landscapes And later The wild capitol city You are with us on a Day on our Worldbicycletour Exactly! Today is another Day on our Worldbicycletour We pack our stuff, have breakfast And try to start early It’s getting brighter now Have fun! I’m starting To prepare breakfast Olga is packing the stuff inside I packed, let’s see if Michel prepared breakfast How is it? Almost, water is boiling We have tea Exactly, this… Is puffed Rice and we make a porridge with it Just add water And then we have this A nepalese or indian sweet That is… flour with sugar Good stuff, we mix it That’ll provide us with power How is it? Yeah, quite good! How much we spent yesterday? Veggies, puffed rice 350 350 is… 3€ Nice, we spent 3€ yesterday And the same the day before Michel is writing the diary I drink tea and enjoy the view Someone must do it It’s going uphill The first 5 km It’s 10% steepness That means, 5km… And about 550m in height But then we have a downhill And then a bit Up and down and up And in the end downhill again So at the beginning we now have The most exhausting stage Of today Which is good i think We start with fresh power now We almost made 2km Started 40min ago We also recorded a bit It’s exhausting, it’s really uphill But it’s nice though To cycle through the nature It’s so different than India The last 3 months we were in India At the beginning, in the north in the mountains We also had nature But there were so many people And everywhere houses and villages Everywhere people And now here we have finally nature again Quietness When there is no car it’s so quiet The quietness We hadn’t it in India We made 2km Nice views Super nice But we have something to do! Indeed A Warsteiner ad Beer advertisement in the whole country! Crazy Michel found a green bottle For his honk 2l Mountain Dew bottle The women saw it and asked herself why did he do that Picking up such a dirty bottle And gave us a clean one We have this Airzound honks With this Pressure bottle And you can switch this bottle with every PET bottle you like This 2l Mountain Dew bottle In this cool green I want to replace it Looks nice! We grab some trash from nature And you have more volume for the honk You can honk longer Our first stage The first pass, there we’ll go up It’s about 2,5km 2km Almost made it 1km or so We made the first stage We arrived on the top 5,7km Nice In the background there is a Stupa It’s a buddhist monument Which represents the buddha himself You can walk around to collect good karma We’ll do that Another cyclist That was nice, meeting another cyclist And twice nice, it’s going downhill! There is our street And into this valley we will continue Looks nice! Continue to go uphill We have to Climb this damm We made it over the damm We decided to make a small break We have the leftovers from yesterday Sweetpotato With chickpeas And some puffed rice, then we move on Enjoy Enjoy Good?
