Transport between Sary Tash and Dushanbe came in the form of Russian UAZ Buhanka off-road vehicles. They were crammed full with passengers, food, and Chinese goods.

When a fellow cyclist asked if he could get a lift in one of them, the homestay owner just glanced at him, his bike and all of his bags then replied, “I’ll call a jeep”.
