I’m finally feeling good enough to get back on the bike tomorrow and go adventuring again. I’ll spend the next week cycling southwards through Azerbaijan and into Iran. During my single trip out of the hostel I stocked on some food to get me through the next few days and withdrew some cash to pay for my stay in Baku. I have finally caught up on transcribing my diary entries, so can move forward without outstanding items hanging over my head. In the late afternoon I had an hour’s chat with my friend Yara, who had some good news to share. Rather than go for an evening walk, I decided to continue chilling out at home. I have just spent the last little while watching YouTube. I’m a sucker for X-Factor/Britain’s Got Talent videos. Thus ends my break from the bike. Tomorrow I once again venture into unknown territory as I return to a wilder lifestyle and continue to push my way towards Europe.
