Whenever you are traveling, you depend on the kindness of others. I’d like to thank the following people who helped me along the way:

  • The guy who showed me where the next internet cafe is in Samarkand and insisted to pay for my taxi to get there
  • The lady who dealt with the taxi mafia in Tursunzade for us and paid the last portion of our trip to Dushanbe
  • The fellow traveler who translated Kyrgyz for me to arrange for a driver in Khorog
  • The friendly Thai people north of Chiang Mai who gave me a ride to the Bua Tong Waterfall
  • The Egyptian father who helped me find the right bus at Giza station towards the pyramids
