Re: Injured Puppy Near Chor Minor in Bukhara Needs Our Help

I was able to post on Trip Advisor but so far no responses. My hope is that someone on here (especially foreigners) may see the post of the dog and have the ability to transport it to a vet or even home (not an impossibility depending on schedule). Or, may know locals or have family in the area who ...

Re: Injured Puppy Near Chor Minor in Bukhara Needs Our Help

Thank you so much for your reply. I’m a newbie to Trip Advisor and wanted to put something out there but am a little overwhelmed by the site. It’s quite busy. Do you recommend posting under a specific forum like I did here, for maximum views? Any tips appreciated. With enough eyes, I remain positive...

Injured Puppy Near Chor Minor in Bukhara Needs Our Help

Those of us who travel and also love animals know all too well the horror of finding a suffering animal and not being able to do anything substantial to help.

Re: Am I getting ripped off on the Silk Road?

Hi Fatima,

I sent you a PM.

Hi Christian,

I was able to find quotes that were much lower (thankfully) for what I needed. I’m in UZB as I write this. Out of curiosity, how does one access the Pamir Highway rate calculator?

Thanks!

Re: Am I getting ripped off on the Silk Road?

Thanks, everyone, for your insights. To clarify, bwv812, I will actually be in those specific three countries in a month, not one week- so that shouldn't convey a sense of urgency to the companies relative to, say, people who decide to plan these types of things on a whim when they are actually ther...

Am I getting ripped off on the Silk Road?

Planning a Silk Road Tour; Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan are already taken care of. I’m working with a company to plan out 11 days encompassing Uzbekistan (4 days), Kyrgyzstan (3 days), and Tajikistan (4 days). Solo, with a driver-guide (one person, not two, performing both duties). I’m a mid-range bu...

Hello All, After scouring the web for days, I came across a direct flight from Almaty to Ashgabat on the website Alternative Airways. The price is $100 cheaper than the tickets quoted to me by a Turkmenistan travel agency. Since I can book online and pay in USD, I would certainly like to do this to ...
