oon another police car arrived and they all started laughing, i think they found it very funny that i was traveling from England and was giving a random guy i met in the remote Kazak desert a ride on my motorbike in the middle of the night, i could also see the funny side and soon they waved us goodbye and also took a photo of me and my passenger/ co pilot
I have enjoyed your report, a true gem. Been riding along with you the whole way Wesley.

Thanks for teaching me something

Thanks to your post, I had to look up Kazakhstan and learn more about it, because the people didn't look like I expected. Now I see it is next to Mongolia, so it all makes sense (the Vodka, I expected.) I really appreciate your photos and feel like I am there with you in a place I'm pretty sure I'll never get to go.

OMG Wesley, you fell in the shit pit in the middle of the night

Fair play to you for admitting to that, I think I may have kept that to myself

No, it is because Wesley shares everything that we are all reading this report! Thanks Wes.

Still one of my favorite RRs, thanks Wes. As for Kyrgs, I'm in India right now for a conference and the guy sitting next to me for last 3 days is from Kyrgyzstan, really nice guy and from what he says the country is changing fast, "modernizing" as we say, I guess for better or worse that's the way things have always evolved.
