... Sea ! The horror stories from people that who have had to get this boat in the past are well known. Folks have had to wait for 4 or 5 days in Baku in order to try and get a boat, has seemed to happen quite a lot on this trip, we landed on our feet....and found a boat leaving at 7pm that very night !!

Now, what this meant was that we had to leave someone behind !!! Unfortunately, Ger didn’t have any Turkmenistan Letter of Invitation, which meant he ...

... we haven't yet bought much of anything.

We passed a very artsy house with painting on the air conditioner and little hands and feet sticking out of various places. It was also lushly covered with vines.

Nonetheless, I am a sucker for culture and history, and so pollution set aside, I must admit that I have thoroughly enjoyed walking through this wonderfully planned city that looks very little like Asia and feels very much like Europe...for the most part.

Last night we dined in a caravansaray, and after feasting on plov and chicken with walnut sauce, with salads and qutab (pancakes stuffed with ...
