At 8am, we were live on air in RTM with our familys and had a conversation with our family members. At 9am, we flagged off from the Sarkand Hotel and headed straight to Almaty. The journey was filled with light rain and then transformed into scorching hot. The condition of the road was still as bad as befo0re. At the same time, we stopped to make a video shoot in the mountain areas.
