I'm writing from a miserable and wet London...and no my supersized thighs didn't propel me home in record time. I had a pain in my knee that I just couldn't fix and decided to fly home from NW China to see if I couldn't sort it out and get back on the trail in May.
I won't bore you with the details of my IT band dramas, suffice it to say physio hurt but I should be back on the road in a couple of weeks. The question is where...I'm not entirely sure and it depends on when I leave, but at the moment its looking like the eastern end of the silk road down through Turkey - will keep you posted.
PS thanks for all the birthday happinesses!
