Wed herd more horror stories about getting through the Uzbek border especially as Pornography is strictly prohibited so everyones phone gets searched cars being throughly searched as Drones are also banned. As it turned out it wasn't that bad.
We had originally planned to go to the Aral sea but that was now out of the question. Consulting one of our guide books Khiva was a place recommended to visit so we made our way there with a lovely lunch stop on the way.
The road network is properly crazy, roads start and end, no entry's start in the middle of the road, luckily for us a local approached us and told us to follow him, again if this happened back home we would defiantly not let a random stranger take us somewhere unknown.
The hotel we got taken to was amazing lovely rooms, cheap, and Bahmal the guy who lead us there couldn't do enough for us, he even got us fuel delivered to the hotel the next morning as petrol is incredibly hard to find in Uzbekistan so difficult theres an entire black market dedicated to it. Uzbekistan has very little oil reserves under its country but lots of gas so to save import costs all vehicles are LPG or diesel which is not good for us.
That night we sat on the balcony of our hotel and watched a sandstorm/ lightening storm/ thunderstorm.
