Day 43: Osh - Fergana

New day - new country: before crossing the border to Uzbekistan we visited Sulayman Mountain, a world heritage pilgrimage site in the middle of Osh. Besides it’s museum and petroglyphs it also gave us a splendid view over Osh.

The border crossing then went much quicker than we had hoped for. We were even allowed to skip a part of the waiting queue despite our luggage being lighter than some other people’s fridges and TV sets.

We then spent the afternoon around Fergana in Margylon’s silk factory and a Madrasah that gives also handcraft training besides religious education.
