Tashkent – Shymkent 120km

Back in Kazakhstan via an overnight stop in Qazighurt

As you can see I’m now back in Kazakhstan.

I’m going to keep this one short and simple as there isn’t too much to say. I’m in a city called Shymkent about 100km north of the Uzbekistan border and I’ll start to make my way north now to Russia. I have to wait here until Monday as I need to register my visa with the police again and this is something I can’t do until Monday.


Being here does have its advantage in that I will get the chance to watch England take on Italy tonight in the quarter finals of the European Championships. I’ve hardly watched any of the games due to the time difference; they kick off here at 12:45 a.m. I’m also not sure if it’s such a good idea that I watch the games, I’ve not watched either of the last two and I’m worried I might jinx the team.


As I mentioned in my previous blog, despite the fact I’m in a hotel it has no Internet so I’m writing this from my room and then have to go out onto the street to find an Internet café to update this and upload pictures which takes a long long time believe you me.


After this I’m going to be in some fairly remote areas where finding Internet access would be akin to finding water in a desert, so my blogs are going to become less and less frequent. It may just be sometimes a few short lines sent from my phone, I shall have to wait and see.


So if you don’t hear from me, don’t worry I’m sure all will be well.

Thanks for all the support once again, 7325km and counting.

Shymkent, Kazakhstan home for the next day
