Caitlyn easily guided Mr. Subaru through the hairpins up to 3500 meter where the infamous 'tunnel of death' announced that Bishkek was near. A few moments later we arrived at the Kyrgyz capital, about two weeks before Oli's arrival.
This meant we had a lot of clocks to kill. The slaughter started at the best hamburger restaurant in town，followed by a Kirgiz military parade display, Oli nowhere to be seen. Then we murdered our way towards a museum-marathon, went wakeboarding at the local cable, barhopped towards a bowling alley and made our own Papudi'pizzas. But still no Oli. We decided we needed to set up a new routine for the remaining five days, and found a gaming cafe to spend our nights, while the days were spent cooking and working out.
Luckily the guesthouse we had found seemed to trap more than just the silk road cyclers, as all beds were taken almost permanently. We saw an opportunity here and made arrangements with the owner of the 'Friends Guesthouse Bishkek', allowing us to sleep outside for free. An empty bathtub in the garden served well as post workout refreshment and made for some waterfun during hot days. What day is it? Is Oli coming today? Time didn't exist during our stay here.
We continued our routine, gaming until the morning sun chased us back to our cages. Until one day, we heard a signature whistle echoing through the streets. As we unpacked Oli's gear, we noticed Stef was doing the opposite. He had impulsively booked a 24 hour stay in a distant country called Belgium, to support his ill grandfather.
Hence we reloaded our watch-weapons and started slaughtering time again. We each bought a leather jacket to prepare for one armed wake-boarding, trampoline back flipping and another gaming session. We even fought some battles at sea on the hostels X-box with 'Assassins creed Black flag', and became real life captains of a sushi boat until we sank to the bottom of the great wasabi sea.
When the crew was complete again, you shouldn't look at our crotches as we synchronized our watches ... beep, boop. beepbeep. beep boop beep beep beep boop.
