Wow
Thanks, for the information, as well as the photos. I visited Kyrgyzstan last summer and was completely awesome! I booked a tour with an agency and it was an amazing trip. We really enjoyed mountainous lakes Issyk Kul and Son Kul. And of course, the Kyrgyz cuisine is worth mentioning. It is really beautiful country, people there are welcoming and still represent nomadic traditions in some regions. My sister wants to go there next year ))

Great trip
Hi John & Steven, Great being able to follow your adventures. so really appreciate the written dialogue and photo's. Certainly you have experienced some diverse cultures. I have just come back from 3 weeks in USA which went really well, especially enjoying the 30 to 40 degree temperatures with little or no humidity. Keep up the diary and photo library. Regards, Graeme Dando

Country #69
Amazing scenery! I can imagine that you must be feeling, at least figuratively, on another planet right now. Best regards, Richard

KKH
Wow! Now you're getting amongst it. What amazing scenery : reminiscent of Ruapehu and the Southern Alps merged into one, but on a different scale altogether. A far cry from the sodden fairways of WPGC, where we trudged, heaved and toiled to little purpose yesterday during a brief break in the monsoon. All Blacks and Wallabies drew 12-all last night in Sydney in an old-fashioned slug fest in pouring rain. Stay well, and keep reporting. It's great to keep hearing from you. Cheers, Richard

Your best article yet!
Despite the lack of comments be reassured I am reading each one :) I am going to put Turpan on my bucket list. Chinese taxis, eh? Always a gamble.

Catching up
Hi Steve (and John ) I've just spent a very entertaining little while over a cold Steinlager catching up with several day's worth of your blog. Reading about it in bulk like this, it's all quite breath-taking! I'm fascinated to read your accounts of parts of China that are way beyond my fleeting business trips to a few main cities. You are doing a great job of describing it all on your blog ... I can sense a book coming to knock Michael Palin off his perch. (I did see the part of the Hidden Army that visited Auckland many years ago, but seeing the whole thing in situ must have been very special). Keep up the great work. Can't wait to hear how things progress as you head into the back blocks on the Silk Road. Cheers, Richard
