I have definitely been pushing the idea that people should come visit me in Dushanbe over the couse of the next year. This request has been met with a variety of negative responses:
- That’s really far away.
- It’s too expensive to get there.
- I’d rather go to Paris, the Caribbean, Hawaii, anywhere else before I go out there.
- Who are you?
Luckily, some of my friends and family have a sense of adventure, or they are adept at humoring me, and they want to come visit me in Tajikistan. As this is something I really want to happen, I have created a “Trip Idea” on Kayak.com that will help people track fares to Dushanbe and, more helpfully, the major gateways to the “Roof of the World.” The link is:
So, no excuses, get on it!
