Hi all, I'm back from my two weeks in Central Asia and I just want to say thanks for all the advice and tips. I had an awesome time and had no issues on the trains whatsoever. Everyone did their jobs properly and was helpful. Also used Yandex a few times and it was a lifesaver! Although one driver I had late at night in Almaty tried to get me to have dinner with him when I said I wasn't married. XD But it was fairly harmless and he took me to my destination. I would recommend the app!
