    ... much smaller scale than Ashgabat. It does however have a racecourse and impressively large spectator stadium. The horses traditionally bred by the Turkmenis are famous throughout the world. Indeed our Queen has been given one by the Government of Turkmenistan. Some tourists come here specifically to ride these special horses.

    *Inevitably our arrival at the border coincides with lunch hour at 1 p.m. There should be no border crossings for about an hour. Imagine ...

    Day: 39

    Friday 8th August 2014

    *We breakfast from provisions in our truck, not our hotel. Today there is no need for the 'Iran Kit' SG wears a skirt for the first time in 2 weeks and abandons her headscarf. For an hour or so it feels somewhat odd.

    *We meet Rustam our guide for the next two days until we enter Uzbekistan. He's a nice guy with reasonable English. His origins are half Farsi and half Russian. Russian is his mother language. We are going on a ...

    Day 38

    Thursday, August 7 2014

    *Today is border day. Although the drive from Mashhad to Ashgabat is only 200 or so km, we want to leave early. You just never know how long border crossings will take.

    *We load the car prior to our 7 a.m. breakfast. The shops outside the hotel are already open. You can buy jewellery, clothes, whatever, at this early hour. The pilgrims to Holy Mashhad not only pray a lot but apparently shop til they drop too.

    *The ...

    ... underwhelming, being not that dissimilar to any market you might find on a Saturday morning in a British town centre selling everything from carpets to water purifiers to gold trinkets to more carpets. We did however get chatting to a number of locals one of whom approached us in a shop and began speaking with a distinctive American twang. After chatting to him for about 15 minutes I discovered that he had learnt English from watching Hollywood movies and following ...

    ... countryside is dominated by desert and single storey dwellings. An earthly Tattooine!

    Just before Ashgabat, we visited the mausoleum of former President Niyazov. His remains are centred with his mother, father and two brothers surrounding him. His father died in World War Two (1943) and then he lost his mother and two bothers (he was the middle brother) in 1948. By any measure that is quite a tragedy. He was the ...
