So there we were, sitting by our tent at 3200m, sipping a beer and looking out over the wide open picture painting of where we had cycled for the day.... yurts, and horses grazing nearby with a backdrop of snow covered peaks. A monster Russian truck rolled across the grass and three burly blokes peered out at us. They climbed down from the truck and strode towards us... bearing a bottle of vodka. They were workers from a nearby goldmine and wondered what on earth we were up to pedalling across this vaast land. A few hours later.. two empty vodka bottles and Frazer and John sleeping very soundly. Prost to our friends Mirlan and Aibek!!
