Rewarded by mission impossible - by Maartje Verhoek

Turkmenabat, September 1, 2016

The day started off in the nice hotel with a swimming pool where we enjoyed ourselves so much the previous night. Luckily none of the fuses blew anymore so all the batteries were charged. As we would not have to travel that far to the next city Turmenabat, we set up our working station in the parking lot of the hotel in order to fix our backup motorcycle (Wave I), which still had inverter problems. A totally new inverter was placed in the motorcycle, but as we are still on a tight schedule the motorcycle could not be fixed totally. We will save that for another day. Luckily we can always count on Wave II to take us everywhere so we could continue again on our way to Turmenabat.

The driving was rather uneventful, but 'luckily' we were kept awake by the bumps in the road which we had to evade.

In the evening we had a nice marble hotel again, with another surprise: a very big screen on which we could project a movie! Mission impossible was a great choice and as we did not have to charge the battery packs we had a well-deserved evening off :)
