Large holes and Lattes

August 12th, 2008 · No Comments

Yes, we’d been warned the roads in Northern Kazakhstan were bad but nothing could have prepared us. Pot holes were more like meteorite craters and impossible to avoid without going off into the fields. With a sleep deprived Jimmy at the wheel, running only on a boiled egg,  we headed for Semey, our final stop in Kazakhstan.

3 hours later when we arrived, we discovered the results of Jimmy’s chronic inability to weave.

We decided our remaining Kazakh tenge would be better spent on latte’s and bacon then on any repairs so we headed to the Semey’s finest cafe. Then we went to the market for 2 loaves of bread, pasta and more bottles of water. And headed to the Russian border.
