It’s friday September 8 and I just had breakfast at the Ibis hotel in Samara. I’ts about 260km from here to Uralsk in Kazakhstan, 200km to the border.

Weather is cloudy today but no rain and it’s getting warmer so I don’t have to freeze anymore. I’ll will probably be complaining about the heat soon 😀

I have some work to do, downloading maps, video and photo editing and some other paperwork. Hope I can leave at lunchtime. Otherwise I’ll  take a look at the city and do some shopping in the afternoon and then stay until tomorrow.
