Re: Winter drive from Bishkek to Dushanbe

hi there

it really depends on the weather. i have travelled in mid November 2 years ago from bishkek to dushanbe and there wasn't much snow. it was a great trip especially that you dont see any tourists; just you and locals.

Re: Advice needed / Scrapping car in Kazakhstan / Kyrgyzstan // selling it if anybody is interested

hi guys
I would be interested to buy a car if it was 2008 year or over. If it is older than 2008 than the taxes are quite high.
