Another early start today its impossible to drive at night so we are trying to make the most of day light. We got to Khorog which is where Our Japanese angle from Uzbekistan said the road becomes tarmac and we have never been more grateful for this. Until you have driven on the Pamir Highway never ever complain about roads in the UK they are marvellous!!
With a quick lunch stop in the local Indian we drove on got some fuel and given recent events with dustiness and poor engine output reluctantly put octane 92 in the car.
Other than stopping to run across a bridge made entirely from sticks and when i write sticks i mean sticks some as big as a finger width, we continued into the night.
We had hoped for good roads to claw back some time and the Japanese guy in Uzbek had said it was tarmac.
More bad roads and an altitude of 4,100M meant we were covering ground and slowly.
It was about 9.00pm when we decided enough was enough and pulled into a random town to camp and today saw our first cold temperature. We quickly got our tents up a fire started and something warm to eat and drink.
Since Germany we've pretty much lived in shirts and shorts. Tonight that got swapped for jogging bottoms and insulated jackets an odd feeling considering 6 hours early the it was so hot.
