A snapshot of true Tajikistan

What is the feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? --it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.

Pamir Highway, Tajikistan

I took this photo the morning that we said goodbye to the incredible family that took us in for the night, fed us dinner and all their vodka plus the neighbor's, and made us sleep in their only bedroom while they all slept in the living room. Generosity to aspire to. 

  • Beautiful photo, one of my favourite quotes and a lovely travel snippet.
