Wakhi/Pamiri Museum

Rugs
Reminds me of a homestay in the Tajik mountains that the Binkleys, Travel Camel, Denise & I scored because there was no room in the Inn. Great memories from your luxurious pic. Especially as I love rugs!!!

Khorog to Yamg
At last an area I am familiar with Gillian. Fantastic memories of life on the road and dancing with the locals. Yep...even a hot springs bath in a little men only room to the right of the main springs near the Yamchun Fort. The Fort...what a splendid panoramic view.

What a great pic. Gotta say Tajikistan has some of my favourite roads. I have posted this in "Follow that Road" thread in the Photography Forum. Check it out.

Fan Mountains
Gorgeous but this pic does not convey the hard slog to get there. Refreshing spot to rest no doubt. I have posted some of your pics in TB's "Doors, doors & more doors" thread in the Photography Forum. Check 'em out.

Khulikalon Lake
Great pic. I was only looking at my Tajikistan pics two days ago reminding me of the stunning mountains of the High Pamir. Then I see your blog of trekking the Fann Mountains north of where I've been and it makes me want to return. I think you know what I mean!

Most certainly know what you mean. I’ve been researching Uzbekistan

Views to Peak Head

If only but when
Western Australia has so many tracks to follow. Coming from Sydney I yearn for the WA border to open so I can return to WA to so follow. Sigh!!!

The Elder Goat Keeper and Sharaf

How good is that?
Memories flood back of our times with Tajiks in Tajikistan & Uzbekistan...hospitality that is truly humbling and memorable. This photo is definitely one for the pool room...how lucky were you...what a special moment.

I plodded away
Slowly slowly seems to be the theme of your trek. Maybe you chant the Urdu word for that. I was once a mountain goat but alas no more. My mantra when trekking up up up is "Like a Tibetan yak...one foot after another...like a Tibetan yak...one foot after another". In case I've missed it, what is the Urdu for "slowly slowly"?

Slowly, Slowly
I wish I knew the English translation- I asked both guides and neither could quite grasp the concept... maybe I'll have one last crack

The streets of Dushanbe
Loved your description of the signless wandering the streets of Dushanbe. At least there were pics everywhere of the President waving when we were there.

Low cloud to the west I think
Wanna more...as Oliver said to Mr Sykes, "Can I have some more?"
19th November 2019

Yep
More, more, more on the way. BTW I have enjoyed your blogs immensely, the countries you have visited often have predated my trips and been v helpful.

The Sky is Falling
I'm breathless just reading...whoosh...a flood coming towards you and shortly after you are sleeping like a log. Oh man...that was scary...but exciting.

It's always nice to get feedback! Such an amazing trip and, yes, a scary night!
