Garry McGivern’s cycling around the world, Thursday, 29th-August-2012 in Atyrau. It’s been another day spent in front of the laptop. And the website is now updated with new photos and videos. Usually, I’d get Steph to do everything for me, but being locked in my hotel room, I’ve managed to get my head around a few things and can update the website myself a bit more. Rather than putting it all on, dear Steph. Who’s been looking after me technically for a few years now. In fact, she’s dealt with everything technical ever since I embarked on my first ride and never asks for anything in return! She’s very dear to me.
At least when I popped down to the bar tonight, it wasn’t full of jocks. It was all Americans who aren’t as bad when they’re drunk!
My bike has been in the front of the hotel on view to everybody since I arrived here. So it was quite nice to move it into the safe room out of site while I fly back to Turkey for four days. To say I’m worried is an understatement!
Don’t forget the main reason behind my ride. I want to raise as much money for cancer research charities as possible. After my wife, Josie, died of breast cancer in 2007, aged only 42. Even the smallest donation helps. You can donate to Cancer Research UK or the Australian National Breast Cancer Foundation. Click on either one to donate. Every little bit helps to rid the world of this cruel disease.
