Mountains here are not as high as Fun Mountains or Gissar Giants. But the road grade lies on the level of not less than 3700 above sea. I could not wait to see Murgab. And finally I saw it. As if it never left my life. During the three years of isolation here, I learned every house, every cliff and every stone there. 20 years passed, nothing changed. And the two most characteristic local colors were in place, too – bright blue sky and ginger-red-yellowish surface, like on Mars. Murgab kishlak on the horizon. River Murgab. I saw local kids and took my toy bags. Trust me, I did not ask them kids to pose, they just like to be onphotos. House where I lived. Had lunch in a good village café and took off for Rangkol Lake Murgab kishlak with Mount Zerkalky in the backgrounds Road to Rangkol Pamir sky is dark blue – for high altitude and tenuous air.
