    Traffic rules are only a guidance

    July 13, 2015 in Kyrgyzstan ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    From Issyk Kul to Karakol. Left the move developed part off Kyrgyzstan today. Love it. Roads aren't paved any more. Traffic rules are absent which I experienced today on a more than kamikaze drive on dirt road. People are really nice here and smile a lot.Read more

    Running behind schedule

    July 12, 2015 in Kyrgyzstan ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    From Chon Kemin to Issyk Kul today. Beautiful landscapes, high mountains 5000m, blue Issyk Kul. And petroglyphs at Cholpon Ata. Behind schedule and had to drop a museum if lunch and dinner should not be at the same time.
    Now staying at an awful resort with lots of rich Russians.

    Still hanging out in this horrible luxury resort. Russians, pop music from the 1970, no cold beer, only one bottle of red wine in the entire restaurant. Food so so - and the restaurant is called: 'The Four Seasons'. Best thing is we're having fun. And they have vodka stocked. Leaving tomorrow - thanks to a unknown landmark for atheists! Karvan Issyk Kul.

    Food and drinks

    July 8, 2015 in Denmark ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    A sheep with little fat is poor food! Other meat dishes is horse based. No chicken (no pork), rarely beef. Fish from the rivers. Freshly baked bread. Special guests are offered the eyes of muttons. Yikes. For ones I like to be ordinary.
    Seems like there's vodka, 'champagne' and beer around ..... :-P
