Heading to Mongolia

We're back at the store, and as decided we mount the stator: it starts (with a good leg), “Russian mechanic good” as would say our friend Alexei. I go for a trial run to heat up the engine and check if the coil is resisting. The engine runs poorly, we’d have to retune the engine but then as I would drive slowly anyway it should be OK until we mount the new part, hopefully in Ulaanbaatar. Morale is up so we stop to say good-bye to Zene and bugger off to the border. Too late to cross it today so we pitch our tent a few kilometers before on a nice hill.
