The great Caspian sea! - la mer Caspienne enfin !

... we went straight to the airport by taxi.

We were impressed by how modern (and how far, in the middle of nowhere) the international airport was. We met a nice representative form Bombardier, former pilot and now technical advisor, who assured Sally (who was a little nervous about taking this badly reputed SCAT airline) that we were –hopefully- not going to crash.

After a big sleep in the plane and a nice ride, we arrived safely at the international airport of ...

... we had the correct form with the four magical stamps on it, supposedly allowing us out of the port and officially into Kazakhstan. Of course the senior army penis at the checkpoint wasn't havin' that, ever in search of a couple more bucks. I was done by this stage, as was the other bloke, who opted for a fake phone call to the "embassy". Christ knows why, but that did the trick... ...

Day 28: J#59 Aktau to the worst road in history

I can’t quite get over how almost everybody looks Mongolian. I thought it would be a 50/50 mix, another clichéd East meets West part of the world but it’s really East meets East with the occasional Russian.I was waiting for a call from Kostya but it never came. Every time I texted him he would say back I ...

... in the country that you can swim in the sea as there's no other towns right on this coast and after that there's no other coast. I went with Zulfira to the ex-pat pub, 'Guns and Roses' it was a themed jobby and not very authentic but the annual Oil and Gas festival that was going on outside was more exciting with traditional dancing on a big stage with flashing lights and everyone loved up about oil and gas, it made me want to buy a barrel of each. ...
