I have installed the Photo Stitch software that came with my camera onto this computer, and have put together a few panorama photos. They give the best idea yet of the kind of terrain I covered in Kyrgyzstan and recently through the Pamirs in Tajikistan. Enjoy.

I spent the snowy morning here in southern Alberta Canada reading your trip entries. You have kept me at the edge of my seat with your accounts. The photos are fantastic and your experiences are very interesting. Of course I say this from the comfort my my home. Oh to be young again! Good luck and will travel along with you on my computer!

Fabulous photos, Rob.

Cornell, thank you for the comment. You can expect some more exciting photos soon. It's not long until I venture into the deserts of central Asia. I am looking forward to it.

The photos are great. Looking at them I can feel the whole vastness of the area. It's so incredibly barren. Have you been slowed down much by any rain? Looking at the photos it doesn't look as if it has rained in a long time. That canyon is amazing. We don't have anything to compare to that in N.Z. How do people survive out there. By the way, Nigel is very impressed with your pan photos.

Aunty Jenny, I have not had one day of rain while cycling since Korea (apart from some showers in Kyrgyzstan for a couple of hours). That's two months! As for the panorama photos, they were taken using the 'stitch assist' setting on my camera (Cannon Powershot A570) and then merged together using the 'Stitch Assist' software that came with the camera. Really easy to make.

Damn, I love the panoramas! You went through some rad country, dude. The western US will have some similar areas but WAY more developed.
