Eventually we found the fuel we needed for the car. 11:30 last night in shadow and under a low torch we siphoned the fuel. It looked very suspicious. Today we are off to Samakand.

Dushanbe, a few Soviet era new monuments and some latter ones. Also some very ordinary Soviet era concrete buildings. The main street is treelined but very hot.
The national dish is the bowel challenging Plov, not recommended for breakfast as we discovered yesterday.
Off to see the tallest flagpole in the world and the largest tea house.
One constant is the standard of driving, crossing the road is a game of Russian Roulette.

Handed over the car today.
On reflection of yesterdays final lap: 40km of abysmal roads, 1st and 2nd gear for most of the way, no signage, problematic 3 hr boarder crossing, 5km of tunnel under construction with moon cratered surface no lighting and the usual maniacal drivers made for an interesting day. However the drive down the mountains into Dushanbe was spectacular if a little dangerous.
Now two days of being tourists before heading home on the 25th AM
