Zig-zag mountain map
The mountain scenery is gorgeous, and how great to be in a private car, so you could stop for photos and not have to worry about going over cliffs in an old, overcrowded bus. So often, as you found in Osh, it seems developing countries have incredible landscapes, but so-so cities. But what a happy surprise that the travel agencies were so helpful and honest--I've never encountered that. Best wishes on your journey ahead on the roads less traveled.

Life as a novelty
Thanks Tara, I think because there isn't a lot of international tourists, we are seen and treated like a novelty. As stated the local transport is a bit rough but thankfully we can afford to get our own driver.

Gotta love the mountains
If you love mountains I would suggest dropping into Tajikistan, except its probably not a good vegan friendly country :( Thanks Traudy.

Winding your way through the mountains
Your road less traveled can be full of photo opportunities with the right driver. Glad you were riding in style. We love hiring a car in the countries where it is affordable. You can stop and enjoy the quiet spaces. Zamir sounded like a wonderful person to cross paths with. People like him always make the trips and life more memorable. Osh sounded interesting.

The only way to go.
In Central Asia it is well worth the extra dollars to get a car and driver, the hardest thing is getting a driver who speaks English
