    then i thought i really messed sth with my tajik visa and gbao permit....
    to make the story shorter - i HAD this permit but i didn't know it was this stamp.. i even met someone in bishkek, who knew Sambor, so i talked to Sambor on the phone.. he told me to go to the tajik embassy, get a permit and the go to tajikistan..
    but it was already dark, so i spent a night i 5 star hotel in bishkek
