Motorcycle diaries: a journey on the Pamir Highway


Motorcycle diaries: a journey on the Pamir HighwayI have never ridden a motorbike – something I should have taken into consideration when I decided to buy one in China. But the hostel I was staying in Kashgar old town was too full of crazy travelers not to be tempted to be the craziest of them all. So, when I read the suspicious offer “motorbike for sale, no Chinese license required”, I thought “why not”. Needless to say, a Chinese license was very much required but Dorus, the former owner, managed to drive 9k without having one: benefits of being smiling foreigners.
