Re: Turkmenistan by car: mandatory GPS tracker questions

We drove Turkmenistan this month. They didn't give us GPS. We made a big detour to Derweze (our rout was from Farap to Altyn Asyr through Mary). Police stopped us several times on the road to Derweze and didn't care about our transit route. Also the cameras at the checkpoints seemed harmless. At the...

Re: Turkmenistan: Change of Exit Border?

The 3rd one left us a power of attorney), the consul c...
