We caught up with Ed the night before and stayed at the same guesthouse he was in.
Next morning we headed off to get as close to the border as possible after reading a lot of warnings it can take a long time to be processed at the border.
Ed went ahead of us as we had a few issues with the 4WD system on the Pajero. When towing the bike on the back and a bit of ice we thought it would be smart to sort it out. It was a vacuum cable on in reverse, then headed for what can only be described as a shack right at the Kyrgyzstan border.
This was the guesthouse for the night 🙂
