Leaving Osh, after a relaxing day
On the bike: another traveller, from France, staying at our hotel, which we have now found out is the Osh Nuru (meaning the light of the city)
Morning at the balcony in Osh
(in a hotel that we don’t know the name of because it is only written in Kyrgyz letters..)
Not sure what the Homestay was called, but it had one nice hotel room as well as a restaurant room
In a Homestay in Kalaikhum
Since we had expected using all morning to get the GBAO permit (which we already got last night) we had a late start.
Going out of the city we stopped to stock up on drinking water and coke, in small shops along the road. Not a problem with fuel here, with plenty of fuel stations and even people selling along the road. We even drove through the small village of Boston today!
Early start to get to the bordercrossing between Uzbekistan and Tajikistan
Today we were tourists in Samarkand! In 42 degrees..
Early start from Mary and Hotel Yrsgal, which was just fine, serving us what we needed: beer, food,sleep
Driving through Turkmenistan
Early start! But the car did not start!
After a lot of waiting we got our Turkmen visas today, and are now back on the road
Today we have been doing proper tourist things in Teheran
