Nothing really spectacular today. Anne is slowly doing better, but still she is not able to continue cycle. Therefore I have another day in Khorog. Compared to yesterday, I did not feel like doing another day trip, instead I took care of some things in Khorog.
In theory it is easy: If you need cash, take your credit card and go to the ATM. This turned out to be much more difficult here in Tajikistan as most banks don’t support our cards. Today, after trying already the past two days, I finally managed to get some money out of the ATM. This was very welcome, because I really want to prevent running out of cash in the middle of the Pamirs. So far I am still travelling with the €1100 that I had with me when I left Switzerland almost 2 months ago, and I haven’t used any of my cards at all since then because nobody accepts credit cards.
The rest of the day I spent buying things for the next cycling days such as dry or canned food, and another battery for my cell phone because the one bought from the Bazaar a few days ago did not really perform so well. This time I found a new battery from another store, this one should give new life to my phone.
Anne seems to be doing much better again, so tomorrow we will continue cycling south. We also need to make some progress because our visas that expire on June 12. By then we must have exited Tajikistan, and ahead of us is a long and tough way for another 800 km.
