We had a parcel sent to Marian's Guesthouse in Dushanbe last month. That seemed to work okay and it was a nice place to stay also.

you could maybe ask to camp in the Garden.

Have you had any luck finding out what the import taxes would be on a tyre? I'm having a similar dilema. See you on the road

Hi Fern, how is for trip?

We are with the Istanbul MC right now, they told us you were here and we saw your card.

Actually I had not thought about customs taxes, very high in Tayikistan?? May be better option Samarkand in Uzbekistan??

See you soon
