Iran-Central Asia

Hi ;

I will take of for CA in April. My intended route is up to Bishkek and to Astrahan through Kazakhstan.

I was wondering if anyone else is planning a similar route. Maybe we can hook up somewhere.

Cheers,

Hi ;

To help my planning, could you tell me how you plan to reach Azerbaijan from Russia?

Is there a ferry avaliable from Astrahan? or will pass through Abhazia to Georgia and from there to Azerbaijan?

Greetings!
On April, 13-14 we in Teheran shall receive the Pakistan visa. We can meet there.
If you know, answer one question.
The information or experience of entrance on territory of Iran without carnet, for a bribe, "bakshish"

I yesterday talked on ICQ to the girlfriend from Makhachkala. Quality of motorways normal. There is one problem - blockhouses of road militia through everyone of 50-70 kilometers. You lose a lot of time for check of the passport and luggage.
