We travel not for trafficking alone


Off to the Silk Route again - The Golden Road to Turkestan
I have spent decades exploring parts of the Silk Route in India, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan and to a lesser extent, in Iran and Europe.

The one part I have not been to is Turkestan, in Kazakhstan. Next week I go via Arabia to Central Asia in a magnificent flying machine. I plan to drive from Almaty and stop at Suyab which figures on Hsuan Tsang's ( early Chinese explorer) map and also Shalder and Otrar. Otrar was where the famour Al-Farabi was born and is a an uninhabited city which is over 2000 years old.

I will keep you in touch with my travels. For the lust of knowing what should not be known

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and
now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Many
thanks!

I am really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run
into any web browser compatibility problems? A handful of my
blog audience have complained about my site not working correctly
in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any
solutions to help fix this problem?

Hi, There's no doubt that your website might be having web browser compatibility problems. Whenever I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in IE, it's got some overlapping issues.
I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, great site!
