Day 13: Aya – Novosibirsk ( 560 km )

The first part of today’s route took us through small villages in the countryside. The areas were relatively poor but the villages were well kept with the inhabitants visibly taking pride in their homes. The houses were single story, made of wood and often had a Lada parked in front of them. What was wonderful to see were the decorated window frames which each house had. Brightly painted and elaborate in their design, the window frames injected an element of fun and individuality into the otherwise monotone surroundings.
Today we had three time trials on sandy surfaces which were great to drive on and felt a bit like snow, however it was pretty dusty and as a result almost impossible to overtake. On one of the trials in particular we lost a lot of time because we couldn’t pass the car in front of us. Right after the second time trial a car drove into a ditch before our eyes. Luckily the car could be pulled out and carry on without any additional problems.
After we had completed the third time trial the rest of the drive to Novosibirsk was on a main road that fulfilled the sole purpose of getting us to our destination in the most direct manner.
