Day 415 - 30kms: after a tough climb to the pass in the morning, made it into Tajikistan. Corrupt official at border, as usual he gave up as soon as he realised I wasn't paying.

Day 379 - 90.5kms: Welcome to Kyrgyzstan! No asphalt for first 40kms or so. Lovely scenery though. Never seen so much green in my life! Locals mostly friendly, though a little more reserved than Kazakhs (so far). Found this great little spot next to a river just as it started spitting (again!)

Monday 25 May 2015 10:15

Day 379: thoroughly enjoyed kazakhstan, even though it was a few days. These soldiers stopped about 10dkms from the border and insisted I go with them for breakfast. I agreed. I put Stella in the truck and sat up front with the captain, who was a complete nutter! He was obviously inebriated. He was kissing me, shaking my hand and kept calling me American. In the end I got off at the border and they continued into Kyrgyzstan. No breakfast. Funny end to Kazakhstan!
