Leaving the hotel we stopped at the first restaurant to try and buy some water. Arjun went in, and after speaking English, three drunk men approached him offering him ‘crazy Ukrainian drink’ (home made vodka-like alcohol, very strong), which he was kind of forced into having just to get out of the place. He returned with two bottles and we proceeded to walk, aware that we had to make long distances. After 15km Arjun was feeling the effects of the alcohol, knackered, and so we stopped early by a layby and dragged our carts behind some woods where we found a table (much to Kierans delight).
