So we made it! The rally is complete! The car is a bit worse for wear, we are looking a bit worse for wear, but happy.
We left Almaty 2 weeks ago and that was the last time I had a hot shower. The roads were terrible, including the road out of Almaty which was flooded and so congested it took us over an hour to travel a few miles. We …
... perfect example of how kindness needs no language. My brief encounter with the old man made me excited for all of the amazing people I will meet along the way. The rest of my day I wandered through the nooks and crannies of the city, occasionally getting caught in a flash downpour of rain. For dinner I met up with two american girls from the hostel.

... again for being resentful when we had to vacate our ger for those few days and camp out in her room. Why couldn't I have been grateful, and nothing more? Our driver for these next 5 days arrived last night in what looks like a very old Volkswagon van. It isn't though. It's apparently a 2005 Russian vehicle. I'm not at all sure we'll make it! It seems to have a hard time starting, and even on asphalt we never seem to travel more than about 60 kmp. On the uphill we ...
