Only 180km left to my destination. I got in a truck at 4pm and expected to arrive before sunset.⁣⁣⁣

Unfortunately it took 8 hours to cover the distance of only 180km in the mountains.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
We literally drove with 5km/h uphill.⁣⁣⁣ Even than we had to take a break cause the truck was overheated.

Overheated truck while hitchhiking in Kyrgyzstan, so we drove with the engine cover open.

⁣⁣⁣The views were breathtaking and the driver was very nice. But I was exhausted.⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣
At 1am we finally arrived in the city of Osh. I officially finished the Pamir Highway now!⁣⁣⁣
