What a difference a border makes. It was a long drive out of China with SEVEN passport checks along the the way for who knows what reason. At the border we walked into a half empty building at the top of a mountain pass and got our passports stamped with a smile. The Kyrgyz govt. decided to let a lot of countries in without visas a few years ago to boost tourism and I think it was a great idea. We were met by our mini bus for the week and our ...

... and bread that was suited for bread crumbs. My first cup of coffee (nescafe mind you) since Bishkek. Anyway, chatted away and truly ad a good exchange of experiences and views. Good fun. A german couple were going to Bishkek too so we teamed up to negotiate a good price for a ride and had another couple , from Holland, later joined forces with us which made our strength of negotiation so much stringer. Got a minivan for $9/person for 240km and 4hours. ...
