    ... 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). So I opted for a shared taxi, at $10 instead of the $1 bus, ...

    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.

    This was my 7th visit to Turkmenistan - there is no other country in the world that I ...

Serdar, whose views I accept and respect about a lot of things (like too many policemen) thinks it is all great and there is no problem with the president being re-elected with over 90% of the vote! Oh - and the first president banned Opera and Ballet (what - men without trousers!)

    ... 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 ...

    ... 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. Ron got the remainder of city tour showing off the ostentatious display of massive white marble buildings of gov. departments, statues of heroes and other monuments. Talk about flashing your (oil) wealth. So...would we visit again? Probably ...
