Shymkent, Kazakhstan, Monday

I left Kyzylorda yesterday and the plan was to stop at Turkestan. The road was good and I thought I could continue without being too late here in Shymkent.

But the road got really bad after Turkestan and I did’t arrive until four o’clock in the morning :p

I’m leaving for Tashkent in Uzbekistan now and I really hope the border crossing won’t take too long. I need to check that the bike is ok and go to bed early tonight before setting of into the Uzbek countryside. It might be that I decide to stay in Tashkent an extra day, we’ll see..

Somewhere between Kyzylorda and Turkestan.
