Two years ago today I was having a delicious lunch with these lovelies… I’d just left Kathmandu by air because of the difficulty in obtaining a visa for Pakistan in India. I’d arrived in Almaty to a completely new environment – vastly different – to the chaos of Nepal and India. Kazakhstan was a whole new place in every way. The roads were massive, wide paved and organised in a grid system (a bit like USA). The food was quite a change too. From dhaal baat to manty in one sweet move. In this photo I’m traveling from Almaty towards Bishkek. I’d pulled up for a bite to eat and crossed path with these ladies that lunch. We shared some epic pantomime and I put to good use my newly inked magic letter. A beautiful moment and a very warm welcome to Central Asia. This day is my sister birthday too – happy birthday sis! #happybirthdaytoluce #almaty_insta #biketravel #womenofcentralasia #mantyforlunch #mantyforsupper #mantyforlife #mymainmanty #kazakhstanbybike #throwbackthursday #tbt #rideoftenridefar #freerideonthefreedomhighway
