Downhill, tailwind, all day. I felt I deserved it. The only explanation for the tailwind is that there is another cyclist riding the Qinghai-Tibet highway in the other direction, and the wind can't make up its mind which of us to torment. I got lucky.

Arriving in Golmud was a strange experience. But my typing fingers are getting tired. It'll be in the book.
