Road Tashkent-Samarkand-Bukhara-Khiva-Urgench closed???
I found these (bad) news
urgent!!! updates for road and 3 nite rule needed!!!! - Lonely Planet travel forum
and this worries me a lot, because my passport is currently in Rome at the various embassies for the Visas of RUS, KAZ, UZB and KYGZ.
If the road Tashkent - Khiva is closed, for me there's no reason to proceed with this trip anymore, as the three cities of the Silk Road are the highlight of my motorcycle ride to Central Asia, from June 24 through July 24.
In this case, I'd prefer to postpone it to 2013, it would have no sense to ride half of Asia to visit only the steppe of Kazakhstan and the remains of rusty ships in Aralsk...
Is there anybody on location that can confirm (or not confirm, which is my hope) the closing of Uzbekistan's main historical road?
