It’s 9pm and we have had dinner, in the Land Rover, and are having a really cold beer in celebration of a few things. Thanks folks for your kind wishes. 74 Not out. Not a bad knock for a lousy batsman..:)
First and most importantly the Land Rover is whole again. Yep, new pump fitted and tested. No leaks, amazingly..:). We are not home yet though, as it wont be considered a success till we have done a day on the road. What a relief though!
Funny how I didn’t know the pump was noisy, till it’s not! I cant believe that I hadn’t picked it up long ago.
Great trip back from Tashkent. We travelled “Business Class” 🙂 and had lovely deeply padded armchairs but a young mother with two children in the cabin created, entertainment. The toddler about 18 months was a bit of a handful.
For our business class seats we paid 208,000 som or NZ$41.60, for a 570k ride. The train (below) looks a rattler but it flew, well relatively. Welded lines and smooth as silk.
Tomorrow we are off early. It’s going to be 45degC here tomorrow and we don’t want any part of that. A mere 40deg C in Samarkand, then crossing into Tajikistan Monday.
So Lizzy, don’t say I don’t look after you, it’s train bonanza..:)
