    ... that's a red rag to a bull for me so I tell them I don't understand and only speak English and keep walking. Though once a senior officer was called to reinforce the 'advice'

    The odd thing is. 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!

    *Times were tough for Turkmenistan prior to and in the aftermath of the disintegration of the Soviet Union. The country lost a significant number of its well educated people who went abroad seeking a better life. From what Rostam says, Turkmenistan makes it difficult for them to return.

    ... we have no photos to document. Their features vary from those who could be Iranians to those who have more Mongolian features, or those with fairer colouring who obviously have Russian connections.
