Average speed / 平均速度: 15.5km/h

English Summary: Yeah, I reckon I done good today. Wasn’t totally sure if I could get over the pass (Chirchik Pass – 2408m) in one day, but I kept the pressure on all day and it is done. Heard from two British motorcyclists that there were two cyclists 35kms behind me in a hurry to make it over to China before the border closes for ten days. Apparently they have three days. That’s tough Possible to buy some food in Gulcho. I bought bread and sardines..

「パミール高原」の初日です。英語では「Pamir Highway」です。この道はキルギスのオシュ市からタジキスタンの首都のドゥシャンベ市まで続く。「世界の屋根」と呼ばれる、この道は世界中でももっとも離れている地域のひとつを通る道です。ここからどんどん車も人も通らないところへ入り込みます。

Lunch break at a check point - about 20km from Osh on the Pamir Highway (Kyrgyzstan) / お昼です(オシュ市を出て20km時点にある軍隊チェックポイント)


Now that is the sign we like to see! (1100m drop from Chirchik Pass, Kyrgyzstan) / ロバートが大好きな下り坂。今回は1100mをくだった(チルチック峠、キルギス)

So – at last you've made it to the Pamir Highway. Great photos, great scenery but I notice the lack of any greenery.
