TR2012 - The ride (part 1)

Look at the Russian press report: https://manfred-tinebor.fotki.com/journals/tr2012/entry/wdkqdskgrsts/

In the first part, Manfred rode 950 km from the start Archangelsk at July 23th to a sleep rest place at a lake in Yaroslavl. During Manfred slept directly beside his couch, his couch, his luggage and his shoes were stolen! So in the early morning of July 26th, in less than 3 days, Manfred's marathon came to a preliminary end. :-(

    They are looking at Manfred with so kindness and love, that it may be thought that all had been  expected when Manfred s bike would be stolen and they would meet at last!!! ( especially girl)

      :-D  Dear Marbess!  :-D
      The policeman Sergey is a cycling enthusiast  ...he is member of the bicycle marathon club CARAVAN Moscow  ...and he organizes bicycle sport events in his home town Uglich!
      He works in another police station. But as he heard, that from a member of an international bicycle marathon a bike was stolen, he came extra to help me! Of course, we both felt the brotherhood of marathon cyclists. :-)  
      The kind interpreter girl is a teacher for english language of the University of Yaroslavl. From time to time she gets interpreter jobs from the police. Yes, it seemed, that her signal transmitter and my transmitter work with an equivalent wavelength.  :-))) 
      In that friendly atmosphere, the police inspector could not be too official. :-)

          Yes, yes! Bravo to the Russian police!!!  
          In Germany no police looks after a bicycle theft! ...and no German police patrol would get photos of a stolen bicycle ...and no German police patrol would keep a lookout after a stolen bicycle and then still find it!!!
