Buckhara to Mary Turkmenistan

 

Left Bukhara with a group photo at the Madrassah. We had to find a spot where the cars could be lined up. Ian and I had driven Vulcan the night before and had photos in front of the minaret and the Madrassah.. Now we had a photo of the 8 of us.

Arrived at border and began the process. Exited Ubezkistan. However the Turkmenistan border control went on lunch for 1 1/2 hours … a fact that the Turkmenistan guide hadn’t let us know so half way through our entry process the offices were locked and the staff disappeared.

We eventually were processed and began the drive to Mary. A very hot, desolate landscape. With herds of camels instead of cows and sheep this gave us an indication of the aridness.IMG_3194 (1)IMG_3192

Arrived late, dinner and bed.
