Friends kept calling and sending me messages all night, suggesting how to open the car, so I couldn't really sleep and had to get up early. We have to open the car and drive back.
But first things first, we need to get some exercise and training. In order to maintain shape, I work out every morning, wherever I am.
Depending on where I am, I adapt my routine to the conditions. If I'm home or at the hotel, it's a full 40-minute workout with stretching and strength exercises. If I'm on the road, I do a minimal for all sets of muscles of different intensity.
Tiksi's no exception, workout according to the plan. If I don't take care of my body, no one will.
After breakfast, I try opening the car. I've tried everything I could find on the Internet. I pulled on the doors, the trunk, fiddled with the locks, etc. But nothing worked. The engine's roaring while I'm hopping around with a serious face and a frozen nose.
Perhaps if I Knew how to steal cars, there wouldn't be a problem. Oh well.
There is only one option left – break the window. I tried to avid that at all costs, I didn't want to drive through the north with no window.
I applied scotch tape to the window to avoid glass flying everywhere.
And then I start breaking the window. Lightly at first, and then stronger, and stronger. The glass turned out to be really resistant, plus I had plexiglass all over it. It takes a really strong hit for it to break.
The glass flies all over the car as if there was an explosion. Well, gonna have to take it all out later.
The Chinese gave me a piece of plexiglass, which was conveniently unclaimed.
I cut it in the needed shape and applied scotch tape to it. It turned out pretty good, so I could get back to the continent.
