    ... be 2, taking 7 hours, so I was at the bus station for the 8 a.m departure. By 9 a.m., there was no sign of it and I was told the next one would be at 12. I began to wonder if that one would fail to show, also, and anyway, didn't fancy arriving so late in the city, with no hotel booked ( I had tried to call ahead from the Mary hotel to find the cheapest option, but none of the phone numbers was correct).

    ... bad roads. Next day in Ashgabat, we started with a trip to an archaeological site, and by mid morning I was feeling less than fabulous from something dodgy I ate, so I retreated to the hotel to rest.

    ... for the tarmac where we plan to wait for the Dutch contingent. Our guide does not look well, SG fears he may vomit in the back of the truck and keeps a watchful eye on him.
