Re: Bishkek to Balykchy train in September?

Re: Is my medication allowed in Uzbekistan? Q&A

Neither "Kazakhstan" nor "Dushanbe" are in Uzbekistan, and also, Dushanbe is not situated in Kazakhstan. Apart from that, normal medication is no longer a problem in any of these countries.

Re: Tashkent to Samarkand afrosiyob

It appears that currently Afrosiyob tickets are put online for sale only 14 days in advance. No idea why. Your alternatives are booking a slower, cheaper train (which are still perfectly comfortable IMO) or waiting.

Re: Passing to Abkhazia from Enguri Border

That's interesting (especially considering that they refused my request to stamp my passport last year even though they had a stamp, saying it was for locals only)! Could you post a photo of the stamp?
