        ... of day 5. My plan had been to look around Ashgabat for the afternoon and evening, sleep in another overpriced Soviet hotel, and leave early on day 4 on a bus for Dashogus, near the northern border. But now I was concerned... the guide book talked of a 9 hour bus ride, but a quick internet search yesterday turned up results ranging from 10-18 hours... and I couldn't risk overstaying my visa, as this would incur a huge fine, which would probably require backtracking to ...

        Unfortunately this entry might be a fairly short one, as I didn't go to Ashgabat for backpacking or a holiday – I was there to work!

        Getting to Turkmenistan from Asia is a bugger. I had a 8.5 hour flight from HK to Dubai, followed by an 8 hour transit in Dubai airport and then another 2.5 hour flight to Ashgabat - it certainly was not fun, but I got a LOT of movies watched.

        ... by the way, not the year). For those of you unfamiliar with the modern history of Turkmenistan, one name epitomises it- Sapurmurat Niyazov, aka Beyik Turkmenbashi (literally Great Leader, Father of All Turkmen), President for Life (d. 2006). Outside of North Korea, this is the only extant state where one can view a full-blown personality cult. It is impossible to confine the outlandish narcissism, the gargantuan megalomania, and the whimsically ...
