wow I don't even know where to begin. It's been a while since our last update, and unlikely this one to be a long one. We are in turkmenistan now in turkmenibat and tomorrow we are heading back to uzibekistan where hopefully internet is more normal.
Let me just quickly say the ferry across the caspian sea was not a luxury cruise. It took about 14 hours to cross, but we sat out in the sea without much communication from onboard of what was going on. End to end it was 36 hours of a bunk bed in a room, without a/c, without a working toilet nor working light. We did get in a lot of iphone games, and a few movies that jeff had on his laptop.
Turkmenistan has been a warm welcome of meeting and staying with aslun at his house in a village somewhere between turkmenbashi and ashgabat. Crazy marble buildings in ashgabat, tons of desert terrain, and the heat has been on since azerebaijan (40-44C / 104-111F).
We met up with team geekout today and visited merk ruins. A funny duo that have luckily shown up at the same hotel as us tonight. So i'm sure there is more to come.
We have lots of pictures and maybe we'll be lucky to get a video up or two.
Anyways the internet across turkmenistan seems to close at 8pm, so this will be my last work for tonight, hopefully we can get some wifi tomorrow.
until then see ya.
