nice meeting you!

It was really nice meeting you, a little too short though: it would have been nice to hear more of your stories. But after riding Morocco a week apart form each other and and realize we were in Dushanbe the same day, it was quite funny to find out you were hosted by my neighbour in Almaty!!!!

By the way the concert was great, sure you would have enjoyed it, but I totally understand the «call of the road»

Bon voyage...

Nahhh that's not true....

That chart was printed before the last currency devaluation by the government last March (I think?).... Price for one gallon of gas here is currently 5 cents USD....

That's about the only good thing we have here right now. I'd rather pay high fuel prices that deal with the shit going on here at the moment...

Looking forward to your next post Noah

Yeah, I know. Gas prices are only one part of what people have going on in different parts of the world.

I just saw this video of a guy who took a cruise through Iran on a little 90cc or 125cc. He had this little bike loaded up and he talked about how friendly everyone was. My GF went around the world and said the same thing about many countries, including Iran. I think our media, and sometimes our governments, lead us to believe that "those people" are bad. In my limited travels, I find the case to be just the opposite. I have also found that it is often people with the least to be the ones to offer the most.

Noah,
Great read, I'm enjoying your trip.
While you were in Morocco, you rode the 990 Adventure. Would you have considered using it on your trip? Or is it a little too complex for such an adventure?

I'm sure how accurate this is, since I know that Dominican Republic is $6.50 USD a gallon

Slight change to plans.

I made it to Russia. I know I'm behind on the posting now....

2 days ago I met a 25 year old Russian girl on a xr250. She is an engineer near Vladivostok and has to be back to work in a few weeks. She is helping me with Russian and I am helping her with english.

My plan was to spend a week or so in Altai then kill time in Mongolia waiting for Craig (GuiltyParty) to get there around the 15th of July.

Now I'm riding with her on the M53 toward Baikal for the next week. When we get to Ullan Ude I will go south into Mongolia and double back to meet up with Craig. She will continue home... unless I can convince her otherwise

I should still have about 1 week in Altai before/when I meet up with Craig.

So for the next few weeks I will be behind. Maybe for the next few months. I'm sorry about that. There is much moto riding to be done and I don't feel like spending so much time behind the computer when I can be spending my time in better ways.

Good heavens, man. We understand riding comes before blogging, but the least you could do is post a picture of the Russian girl.
