May 24th 2011

Once arrived in Turkmenabashi at about 10.00 AM, we were finally allowed to put our bikes on land to start the very long and exhausting customs procedures. After a long wait of about 3 hours we were told that they were ready for us and the comedy started. We had to go through so many controls and had to pay so many times fees that we were not aware of. Patience was severely put under stress but Matteo and myself knew that we could not fall for it and stayed calm.

At around 4 PM we finally cleared customs with much less money and a bunch of useless paper work. We headed toward the first city named Belkanabat where we rested for the night.
