Re: Kyzylart - Bor Dobo border crossing (Murghab-Sary Tash)

Crosses yesterday, by public transport. Very straightforward, no brides asked, no harassment. Very smooth on both sides.

Arrived by train from Mashhad in Sarakhs, jumped into some kind of minibus (I don't think it was public transportation as no one paid in the bus and there were only men, but the driver kindly dropped me directly in front of the border control). Fir...
