Videos from your Central Asian Adventures.

So we were in Central Asia in June-July of 2017 and loved it. It's taken a while but we put together a video of our trip. I thought that this thread could be a place for people to post their videos for others to look at and get an idea of what the region has to offer. https://youtu.be/DcNMJtcZ1QI

Re: New Railway Baku-Tiblisi-Kars (Turkey)

Does anyone know if this route is operating properly now (January 2018)? We will be in Tbilisi in March and want to try to traverse across to Cappadocia while we are there. Interested to know if anyone has made the train journey if they have anything to share about it.
