Day 41. Friday 11th September 1970 – Afghanistan

We managed to finish the rest of our visa, police and insurance matters. One thing we did to speed our way through these procedures was to make sure that only two members, clean and well dressed, acted on behalf of the expedition team.

We camped for the night after having a front wheel blow out. This put the wind up every one, a tyre with 110 psi in it makes one hell of a big bang, not to mention the difficulty keeping the bus on the road. We had now to think again about the heat and the tyres.

The weather was very hot and sunny, about 100 deg. F in the shade.
