Tal i com comentem en les nostres dues entrades, la continuïtat de la ruta o Bangkok.Bagan.Bishkek?!? aquests dies hem deixat el sud-est asiàtic per saltar al cor de l’Àsia central.

Acabades Tailàndia i Birmània hem tornat a Bangkok per volar fins a Bixkek, la capital de Kirgizistan on a part de visitar i conèixer un xic més aquesta part del món totalment desconeguda per nosaltres, ens hem atansat aquí per obtenir els visats dels següents 2 estats/països que tenim a la nostra ruta. Tadjikistan i Uzbekistan.
