Re: Scottish ferry news

Re: Lockdown non-touring quiz

Lets go for Tajikistan, based on @matt2matt having ridden the Pamir Highway a few years ago. Could also be Uzbekistan; I'll guess that Afghanistan was off limits and he started in Dushanbe. Top marks. Afghanistan was off limits although I did throw a stone at it. Uzbekistan was next door. Yes, Taji...
