The going is tough today. We're managed only 15 km/ hour but we climbed to 10,500 feet or 3252 meters through the Sagirdasht Pass.
Tajik kids just hanging out-
The Obikhingou River where we had to wait for an hour for an 'escort' (not sure why) to lead us along the goat trail-
The view -
We came to this fork in the road: left or right? Luckily a local came along. It was left-
The thin white line is the road we were on-
A village in the middle of absolutely nowhere!
One of the larger cattle herds along the way. The tent on the left will be 'home'-
The woman on the bottom left is making manure pancakes - drying them on the rock to burn for fuel-
An avalanche area-
We went down these roads-
We had lunch at Kala i Kum and Afghanistan is just across the Pyanj River-
Tajikistan on the left, Afghanistan on the right of the Pyanj River-
Stone fences encircle graves-
I paid 18 sonomi ($ 3.60) for this vodka and 14 sonomi ($ 2.80) for the juice! Go figure!
Here is our bush camp tonight. Notice the snow on the mountains-
Looking forward to more Pamir Highway driving tomorrow!
