Good to hear from you - Aleksander mentioned you and showed us your border permit while he drove us back to Naryn in the rickety GAZ. Good to see it held together for you in the end! It is an amazing place, Komorova looks huge, I don't envy your walk-in.
Very strange weather in that place, we were tent bound for 5 days at one point then had more than a week of clear weather at the end.
Jock, cheers - twas a great trip and there'll be a talk in Belfast about it in Feb.
