nice one bud! It's good to get a bit of local info on the place. When my wife and I went through there we obviously did'nt speak the lingo and I think we missed alot. I was also suffering quite badly from altitude sickness induced by having to push my wife's bike up and down the street in karakol in full bike kit. we actually passed out in a valley just past Murghab and slept for 15 hours straight. This is bringing back a lot of memories, keep going bud.
