Foxes, Broken sump guards, gherkins and vodka


An amazing driving through some of Kazakh desert.  We drove into the darkness with desert wolves (not the technical name i'm sure) around us.

The sump guard that the local garage had kindly fitted was taking a real battering and after driving over a rough piece of ground decided it'd had enough and promptly fell off.  Kieran managed to get it back on again whilst I very helpfully took a photograph.

Finally getting to the edges of the desert we came across a house and the people sitting on the porch beckoned us over.  We joined them for a midnight feast of gherkins and vodka.  A lot of gherkins.  A lot of vodka.  We slept on the porch which was covered it a LOT of moths (I mean literally hundreds).  I HATE moths.
