So. As I said in my morning post (D76 AM), kids from the lake work.
But we – bikers – rested for one hour. Had a picnic and a nap by that beautiful lake.

And – you know me – I also had some sweet.
A small bowl called gulab jamuna, a mix of flour, sugar and oil I assume.

I had three in a row and, frankly, I deserved it.
In the short video below, you will see how the landscape looks like, and how I slided on the sand. I was the first one to slide but I got reassured a bit later when other experimented bikers had the same issue as I did !!!

The thing is that afterwards, I didn’t check the bike, just that I was OK.
But when falling, the ropes maintaining my bag to the bike moved, so I dropped the bag a bit later. That’s now how my bag looks like:

But the day wasn’t over yet.
Then we met a camels caravan.

And then… We will bivouac in the desert tonight !!!
