I had one of those great mornings where you feel like you’re being really lazy and enjoying a sleep in, then discover it’s actually earlier than you thought, so you both had a ‘sleep in’ but didn’t waste time. After breakfast I headed into the city in search of stove fuel, a bicycle tool and cycling leggings. I found the latter two and also collected toilet paper and milk powder. The stove fuel eluded my dedicated efforts, despite hours of walking around. I have officially given up on finding any and instead have resigned myself to buying petrol in Kyrgyzstan. Through the afternoon I irritated my eyes from hours of searching the internet for information about how to obtain visas for my upcoming countries. It was a fruitful search and I now have a solid plan. A timely email announced that I have been granted the first of several visas I’ll need: Tajikistan. This work took me through to dinner, for which Anne and I returned to the night market, where I got a sweet spring roll, two dumplings, chicken leg and watermelon – a mixed but delicious meal from four separate vendors.
