Navigating in Central Asia is a challenge. As soon as we drove across the border into Georgia (from Turkey), the road rules seemed to change. In fact, the road rules seem to fly completely out the window. Hello Mongol Rally, is this what we have to look forward to?
Turkey, in comparison with Georgia, was orderly. The cars drove the same way we do in North America. There are lanes on the road for traffic, and the cars stay in their own lane. I know, you're thinking 'Why is she even talking about this stuff?'. I'll tell you why!
I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Asia, so I'm used to things like crazy drivers, and the lack of road rules (or at least I like to think I am), but traveling through countries like that, and driving through countries like that, are two totally different things. The cows walking around the Turkey - Georgia border should have been a hint of things to come.
