6,000 km Photo

We were about to climb our highest pass yet, at 2,210m altitude, when we passed the 6,000km mark. This means that we have done over one third of our cycling distance so far in Turkey alone, having cycled more than 2,000km in this country!

The scenery was remote and rugged, with few villages in between. A few minutes after this photo was taken, we were stopped by soldiers at a military checkpoint and ordered to drink tea immediately.
