Cars and Jabs

Kieran and me drove up to look at a car. My mechanical know-how being virtually non-existent meant that it looked fine to me but Kieran pointed out some lights that were flashing in a way that was "Not Good". We decided against it.

We needed visas for Kazakhstan, Russia, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Mongolia. Disappointingly pricey at just over £400 each, they are now in the hands of the Visa Gods. Okay, not the Visa Gods - The Adventurists Visa Service.

It's hard to know what the genuine risks are when you're going to places outside of Europe. Sure Mongolia suffers from plague in August, but really - are you likely to catch it? So what vaccinations to have?
