After some anxious waiting, we are finally relieved and happy that our Visa for Mongolia has finally arrived. It wasn't as hard as some people made it sound. Anxious because we heard that some teams were refused the Mongolian visa, for reasons known only to them.
So with that, we have received all the visas that we applied for. Uzbekistan, Russia and Mongolia. 3 to be precise, thanks very much to the Black passport we all carry. If you don't understand what that means, think All Blacks. I have heard that some poor chaps need to get as many as 12 different visas. That's not a lot of fun.
The only paperwork we now await is the Letter of Invitation (LOI) for Turkmenistan. Hopefully, we will get that soon too as we can't enter Turkmenistan without it, which means NO Gates to Hell. That will suck big time.
