Over breakfast Dave suddenly reveals he’s not going any further, he’s going to ditch the bike and fly off to meet his girlfriend, which leaves me on my own in Mongolia. I will only say that I’m quite disappointed and apprehensive about crossing the Amur highway on my own. I now have to decide whether to carry on alone or quit here. I’ve invested too much in this to stop now, no matter how hard the rest of it might be. I’m really proud of what I’ve achieved, that I’ve got this far. I really have no enthusiasm for it at the moment, but I can stay here a couple of days and decide what to do.
