Arslanbob to Ferghana in Uzbekistan (border crossing)

This was a big day. Again animals and drovers on road as we left the walnut forest. Drove over a pass again.

We drove to Osh reputed to be one of the oldest cities in Kyrgyzstan where we had stroll around and a late lunch. Visited what was supposed to be a silk road museum. It  was set in a 3 story yurt and although didn’t have any history of the silk road, it did have clothing and pottery etc…as well as paintings and rugs that could have been similar to the times.

We continued on for the interesting border crossing.  We were processed out of Kyrgystan and eventually processed into Uzbekistan. Once through the border, although we gained an hour in the time change, we still had another 160 km drive from there to the hotel in Ferghana.
