I'm more agog at each post. I may have missed you mentioning this, but your 10-day excursion into the Pamirs: Did you somehow arrange that in advance (if so, how?), or was it an ad hoc thing once you had reached Sarhad?
White, English-speaking dude riding solo to Kabul, Afghanistan.
When I was in Pakistan months before, I Stayed at Alam Jan Dario's home stay in Chapusan Valley (http://www.pamirtrails.com/
) which is on the other side of Irshad pass still in the pamirs. The People there are the same Tajik Wakhi who are in the Wakhan. He advised me more on the area and costs etc as he has been everywhere on his horse in this region. I never really travel with an itinerary as such but more of a planned direction. After riding down the Tajik Wakhan from Khargush pass and the M41 last year, I was always wondering what was on the otherside of that river
so put that on a must do list.
