Hello! We are a pair travelling from Uzbekistan to Baku. As per your brilliant review we hopped straight on a train from Nukus to… Beyneu!!! Now spending an exhilarating day here before the next over night train. Thanks to your wonderful recommendations we have been able to make the most of our time here :)))). Q. Do you have Instagram?
