Resuming our journey we are heading south because the shortest route does not work due to closed border. Travelling on roads between perfect highway and worst rough gravel we approach the Tajikistan border. Of course it is getting dark. Reason enough to make a break for a last usbekish beer, followed by stops in several shops (magazines in local language) to get some beers and vodka we reach another closed border. At least we pass the first barrier and find some other teams also camping in the border area. Beers and Vodka do not see the next morning.
