Zapolyarniy + 99km – Murmansk

Got up at 6am, left at 7, didn’t feel too well still, rode the bike for a few kilomteres, pushed the bike for a few more kilometers, then cycled again slowly, and finally made it to Murmansk at half past 2, 64km from my last campsite. Checked into a hotel (about a third cheaper yet than in Zapolyarniy), had a nap, dinner, and fixed an appointment for a hair and beard-do tomorrow morning!

Also went to a супермаркет to get some juice and bread and stuff. It is amazing to have some choice again, and at reasonable prices!, after the boring shopping in Norway. The Cold War is over, and the good old СССР is finally being invaded by the US. Coke & Co. are already here.
