Temporary Post from Khiva, Uzbekistan

After the ferry, I had 5 days on my transit visa to cross Turkmenistan and enter Uzbekistan. I took the train and bus for almost all of Turkmenistan (Turkmenbashi–> Ashgabat–> Konye-Urgench) since there was not enough time to cycle. After the Uzbek border, I started riding again to Nukus then Khiva. Now I am posting from Khiva!┬áSince I don’t have enough time do a full write-up, I will post pictures for now to wet your appetite until Bukhara, Uzbekistan where I can write some more. Note–the pictures are in reverse chronological order.

    Minwah! I’m so glad to see you are trucking/training/busing/biking along! :) Beautiful pictures, as usual. I especially love the beautiful mosques and the donkey-drawn cart full of children, and of course the food…all of your stories of having tea and food with smiley people reminds me so much of the WILG kitchen! I look forward to hearing the tales that go along with the pictures.

    Ack, even more amazing than usual! Can’t wait to see the text, though it’s also fun to guess what’s happeneing. Although, I’m sure you’re guessing a lot of the time too. Sand squares?!

    Sorry you didn’t get to bike across due to silly visa time limit. Hopefully it was nice to rest your little legs on the ferry and on the bus.

    I second Yuki’s thoughts of the WILG kitchen. Ah, I wish we could go back in time and spend even more time just hanging around in the kitchen eating freshly baked cookies that always seemed to randomly pop up when one needed them most.

    Wow, what else can I say? Nice architecture everywhere….

    That stack of money was trying to buy what? Your bike? Hope not….

    I think of you all the time, people ask how you are doing all we all root for you and send you our best vibes.

    Love, Creuza.
