My asthma problems are not getting better and I get the advice of a Dutch doctor and motorcyclist who lives here to make a break and go home to Sweden for medical examination. 

My last two nights I had to sit up when sleeping.

– Remember, you’re going up to high altitude and with your problems right now I advise you to not continue.
– Too risky for your health he said!

I was thinking back and forth, plus and minus, what to do and, what was the best alternative.

Stay here for another day and see if my asthma getting better so I could continue my journey or go back to Dushanbe and take a flight home for medical examination.

Stay here another day and see if my asthma gets better so I can continue my trip or back to Dushanbe and take a flight home for medical examination.

With great anguish I decided to cancel my trip and follow next jeep transport to Dushanbe.

Next day I had a seat on a Jeep to Dushanbe together with two former acquaintances from Germany, Philip and Beata.

 

Beata had got problems with the trachea and the high altitude meant that she did not get over the mountain pass.

She had suffered from altitude sickness.

See Ya later
