    ... in these far flung places.

    *In this white marble city area there are airconditioned bus stops and the main road linking the Ministry buildings is heated in winter so that ice does not develop. We pass a roundabout with a huge thermometer in its centre. The range is from -30 to 60 degrees. We are experiencing 50 degrees during the afternoon. So even allowing for exaggeration at either end of the spectrum, that is a huge climatic range to accommodate within 6 months ...

    ... menu and making clucking, baaing and mooing noises and waving hands in swimming motions in an attempt to gauge whether it was chicken, beef, lamb or fish being offered.

    ... much to the amusement of the staff and embarrassment of our guide.

    After a whirlwind tour we were off to the Darvaza gas crater and another bushcamp.

    The gas crater was left after the Soviets did some exploration work which went wrong, collapsed/exploded and caused a m*********** in the desert which is still alight. It was amazing. Truly like you would imagine the gates to hell. We took lots of photos.

    ... offered me a ton of money if I would switch from business to economy, so I agreed to it … but it turned out they didn’t need my seat (which was a bit of a relief, but I could have used the cash). The plane was a brand new 747-8 – lovely, with large loos, but seats were very hard. Maybe Lufthansa requests particularly uncomfortable seats.
