Re: Caspian sea ferry updates & questions

We crossed from Aktau (Kuryk) to Baku (Alat) on the 15th of September on the Mercuri-1. First of all, thanks a lot for your tips, chouse! We did pretty much everything from your posting ;) By the way, the marine tracking website is useless. We relied just on Ilgar. And guys, there's the best news we...

Re: Latest Tajikistan Stupidity: Bring 10 copies of your GBAO/Visa

So it is definitely not necessary to have 10 copies but I would recommend you to make some if you have the chance, especially if you are with a group.

Re: Snow leopard rehabilitation centre

Update: Hi! We went to the center today from Grigoryevka. We stay at the Bet Zhan Guesthouse and the owner (really cool lady btw) arranged it for us. She knows a guy who knows the guy, who runs the center, and who agreed to drive us there. You need a Jeep because it's quite a bit up in the mountains...

Re: Tashkent - Arslanbob

Hi Vincels! We went from Tashkent via Andijan a few weeks ago: Took the train to Andijan and stayed a night, in the morning we took a taxi to the border crossing of Izboskan (but be clear and call it Madaniyat, otherwise they might think you just want to go to the region of Izboskan - look at this p...
