Re: Diesel in Uzbekistan

We recently crossed from Turkmenistan to Uzbekistan with 40 liters extra. It was not on display, but we also didn't really hide it. Customs checked us extremely well and didn't even mention the extra diesel.

Re: Embassy Report: Turkmenistan transit visa in Frankfurt

We applied for a 5 day Turkmen transit visa in Frankfurt and choose express service. Last friday I called the consulat and the guy received the application by Dutch mail. Altough the website says 3 workingdays, he told me it would take 10/15 days. So fingers crossed; we will leave on the 1st of April.
