Trying To Catch An Hour On The Sun travel blog

the friendship bridge(yes)



about an hour from Mazar is the border with uzbeistan. about 45 min in we are stopped by military, the poor people who end up sharing a taxi with the likes of me. again they think im talaban. it takes 30 to 40 min to convince them im a tourist.but in the end they let me make way for the border. the photo and guide book stupid tourist thing does work.

i get to the border and the imigration guy wants to know where in afghanistan i im a tourist on holiday really.. i work in the states.. tourist.. afghanistan beautiful county....stamp.. i about shit my self. they were letting me through. i have a single enty visa, the uzbeks cant send me back.

well the process in uzbek took one and a half hours. i dont want to go into it. walking into uzbekistan is a different word altogher. its like the ussr with an islamic taste. that day i get a night bus to tashkent.
