When we were in Zong, 5 kms before Langar, we stayed at a homestay where the woman running the place spoke German and English. ;)

Re: Border crossing from/to Turkmenistan

She told me that was under construction, that she had the report of some tourists that tried to cross. Also, when I wrote this, I search in travel blogs.

Re: Border crossing from/to Turkmenistan

Well, we picked up the visa 3 weeks ago to cross by the Konye Urgench (TK) - Hojeli (UZ) border, and in the hotel here in Nunus they are telling us that it is closed and that we have to get back to Urganch!!! Does anybody know something about this issue? Tks!
