880km from Almaty
Just a quick blog entry today to say that I’ve arrived in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
It took me about a week in the end to ride from Almaty and I arrived here a day before the first 30 days of my Kazak visa ran out.
I’m staying in a nice guesthouse and will be here until Friday when I’ll head back into Kazakhstan. As you can see I do have the Internet so I’ll be aiming to update what’s been going on since I left Almaty.
In brief it’s been:
1) exceedingly hot
2) incredibly bumpy
3) some gorgeous countryside which is good for the first few days but somewhat boring after a while.
4) lots of wild camping and not a lot of washing
So now I’m here I’m looking forward to taking it easy for a few days, catching up with what has been going on in the world and making plans for the next stage of the journey.
