Sometimes thing come different as planned. Today, I wanted to cycle on over two passes to Kyrgyzstan. But when I got up in the morning I saw that the weather at the passes is developing in a bad way, so I decided to spend the day at Karakul. The decision was right, because later in the day a big storm with snowfall hit the whole region. Crossing the pass would have been very unpleasant if not dangerous.
As I was not the only guests who was blocked by the weather, I had good company. With me was Frank, a German motor cyclist who I met in Murghab and who also drove to Karakul yesterday. Also at this homestay was a French film maker with his crew who was filming scenes for a movie that will be broadcast on television later this year with his drone. After the snow storm was over I had the chance to observe his work in the field and he told me lots of interesting facts and stories about movie making. So in the end it turned out to be a very interesting day.
Tomorrow I will then start another attempt to cycle to Kyrgyzstan.
