25 July 2008: Ashgabat – Mary

In order to avoid the heat of the preivous day, we decided to leave Ashgabat (almost!) early in the morning, to arrive in Mary in the afternoon. This time, only few kilometers were separating the two stopovers.

Those who wanted to, have then visited the antique site of Merv, famous ancient florishing Silk Road city. An unlikely visit by night!
