Ok, we’ll come clean. We’ve been cycling in the Kazakh and Uzbek deserts for two weeks and we can’t remember very much about it. It’s probably heat exhaustion or sand on the brain, but we’ve checked the photos and we definitely did it. Sipping an Uzbek Reisling (yes, really) in Bukhara we shook our heads thinking, “what happened to us in the last two weeks?”. Then Matt remembered that a sense of smell can help to trigger memories (Matt knew this because he had previously claimed that a recurring blocked nose prevented him achieving higher grades at university (note: exam review boards don’t like facts)).
Finally news of your crossing of the Kyzylkum desert! We enjoyed dining with you in Nukus before your desert crossing. We are back in Boston now and looking forward to hearing more of your adventures. It was 42 in Tashkent Monday afternoon so I suspect you are still sweating profusely!
Bravo, incroyable aventure. Respect.

Just looking at the pictures gives me water-shortage induced anxiety… luckily my rational side reminded me the Netherlands is mostly underwater 😅
