Leaving Taraz a little later than usual. The first 150 Km went smooth but when we stop to fill up at a gas station, Matteo finds a problem with his motorcycle chain. We try to fix the problem ourselves but Matteo feels that if the problem persist it could end his journey. I suggest stopping at the next city and trying to find a mechanic to help us out. We were lucky enough to find a person that had a good know how on “do it yourself” jobs and with some kind of rubber was able to fix our problem. We arrive in Korday, a little town at the border with Kirgikistan, The scenery is spectacular. The mountains around us are 15000 feet. Matteo and myself would really love to make a detour to Kirgikistan but our lack of time doesn’t allow it.
