Good effort on the breakfast SJ - not sure about squid and sushi first thing in the day though! Definitely for lunch and dinner, but I think I'll stick to fruit for breakfast. Glad you're enjoying Cambodia. We had a brilliant time there a few years ago.
Poacher - I've got disc brakes on the new bike. Difficult to tell if it makes a difference but there seems to be a logic in having them.
In answer to your question about Kosovo, we've got a hire car out here and it's very easy to get around, with the usual caveats about signage and other road users. It's sometimes tricky to tell which side of the road you're supposed to be driving on and the bike helmet and lights market doesn't seem to have taken off yet. Reminds me very much of when we were in Turkey at the start of the 1990s - super friendly people, great food and a developing infrastructure. Certainly doesn't feel like a country that was torn apart by civil war 15 years ago.
Running doesn't seem to be a big thing out here, but the judoka (is that the word?) who won a gold medal in Rio is on posters all over the place.
In a nutshell, well worth a visit.
Just under 5 miles this morning for me - hoping to get some more mountain miles in when we had over the border into Albania for a few days.
