Central Asia day #5-Sary Tash to Osh to Andijan to Kokand

I woke up early, outside was -10 degrees, checked for stars but some lights and the moon ruined it. After a hot shower, it was time for breakfast (eggs, bread, marmalade, tea, biscuits). While the Pamir highway is a problem we decided to go the other way around to Dushanbe.

On to first marshrutka back to Osh, 400 KGS-4.2 €,. Interesting ride, with no suspension which was not good for my back, Russian from peak Lenin base camp. In Osh, we took a bus to another station, 15 KGS-0.16 €, and also some walking. Next was a minibus across the Uzbekistan border in the suburbs of Osh to Andijan, 120 KGS-1.3 €. Border took some time. It was crowded on marshrutka, and I had a kid in my lap for some time.
