Updating my blog from JÃµhvi, north east Estonia. Yesterday we followed the Peipsi lake from Mustvee. It is a big lake separating Estonia and Russia, so big that it looks like the sea. We went through some very nice forests with beaches. 10 km of the road were under construction, very bumpy as a result.
Last night we camped in JÃµhvi city, we found a bushy area close to the railway. Not the best place to be honest, as we later found some syringes and needles. But we managed to cook some rice and sausages and have a decent dinner. Joa Marc is having a hard time with his bike as it keeps breaking the spokes - 4 broken spokes so far from the rear wheel. Some of them were on the gear cassette side so he had to fix it in a shop this morning. Andrea started to be unlucky as well as he broke his first spoke yesterday. I am lucky so far - knock on wood - but I bought some more spokes for my bike just in case.
My leg is feeling better after the last 2 days of cycling, but I have to take it easy. We are heading to Narva tonight where we will spend the night in a kind of hostel (thanks to Kaarel!). He also recommended us some pasta carbonara (prononce with the russian accent on the r) in a hidden underground place called Modern. We should enter Russia tomorrow morning, which is the first day of our russian visa.
