Sunrise over the Caspian Sea traveling on a cargo ferry to Turkenbashi, Turkmenistan. This ferry is the only one that carries passengers and we are the only people on board, clasified as cargo! One cannot book in advance, you turn up at the port and wait for the next departure, there is no timetable. Our group had to wait 10 hours in no mans land at the port, waiting for the ship, we departed at 00:30. One nice thing was that the port authority offered us dinner in there canteen free of charge 🙂
After a 15 hours crossing the port of Turkenbashi is closed due to the president of the Turkmenistan is visiting the town, so we are here for the night! Anchored in the Turkenbashi Gulf. Finally moving again after 24 hours at anchor 🙂
P.S. Finally the group cleared customs at 23:00 and so we camped on the parking lot. Not much sleep was had 🙁
