Haha nice I had nothing but good experiences with the Turken visa and the whole system. I got my invitation via email then turned up at the boarder paid the fees and was in. So no posting passports or waiting at embassies in foreign countries. I was going the other way to you, might make a difference. My boat was delayed due to bad weather but when I overstated my visa it wasn’t a big issue. I have read reports about people being deported ! 5 days isnt much to play with, is it ! Being the only westerner can be an advantage I feel at times like that. The officials took pity in a situation that they could have really taken advantage of me! I even had the hundreds of USD extra on me ready to pay the bribes but they never came. Amazing place. Good work on the fuel smuggling ! I had a 28L tank so i was running on Turkmen cheap fuel for sometime ! I too have no photos of me on my bike in the crazy streets of Ashbagat which i regret.
