@DocDoesFarming, you might enjoy these guys if you like a bit of throat whistling combined with some light metal



Just wish I could have spent a bit more time travelling around Mongolia but it wasn't exactly a back packer friendly destination back in the day.

How many other folk can get away with having literal swastikas on their musical instruments and not get called a right wing fascist ? :lol:

Yeah these guys are awesome, there was another similar band I found but for the life of me I've forgotten the name of them. I'll try and have a search and post it.

How comes it wasn't friendly?
What's the dodgiest place you've visited you think?



Not quite the same but these lot are good, I often listen to them while running around naked in the woods at night.
I write a load of bollocks, don't take me seriously.

Thanks for that, they'll provide nice background music for when I'm placing healing crystals at the chakra points of our hatake on solstice or giving the plants their aura massage to relieve their stress. Tell me, do you also enjoy the "music" of Yoko Ono ?

Who doesn't!? Well apart from the this sound engineer and Chuck Berry.
Quite a famous clip that you're probably aware of, is she mental or taking something or is it a bit of both?



I spent 8 hours yesterday listening to some health and safety speech about using a kusakariki, paid 1man for the privilege and in the end they spelt my name wrong on the certificate card I received.
If I had the choice between listening to Yoko Ono scream down a mic or going through that lecture again, I would choose the secret third option of getting my eardrums stabbed.

I honestly feel like you should write some autobiography with all the stuff you've done.

Was that something that they had to do each time do you think for flights?
Were the tickets cheap back then?

Yes every flight needed an escort on the way in but back then it was only Afghan Airways that was flying into Kabul so not many flights each day to provide cover for and boy were they cheap, cheaper than even Aeroflot. Not sure about now but then Kabul airport doubled up as a military base as well so from time to time the Mujaheddin would lob a few shells over the surrounding mountains at the base.

We had an overnight stopover in Prague on the way out as a few craters in the runway needed filling and time for the tarmac to harden before our plane could land. That was a fun night drinking proper Budweiser beer at super low prices followed by shots of cheap Russian vodka and we got to see Prague which was a real bonus, absolutely lovely city.

Sounds like an incredible experience. Those are some places I really wanted to experience but probably not a good time for US citizens to be there. Hopefully it will become a safe place for everyone some time during my lifetime! It’s so wrong when a county’s policies make the world more dangerous for its citizens.

Sadly that part of the world has changed drastically and not for the better. It's hard to believe but just before the civil war Afghanistan was actually quite a liberal country, well in the big cities anyway. It would be amazing if the country could open up once again and maybe things will swing in the opposite direction if the Taliban's grip ever loosens.

Although the Swat valley and Gilgit are not the same as Afghanistan, they are a lot greener, they are probably a bit safer yet still offer a 'wild frontier' type experience. Or Ladakh in India would be even safer and has a similar lunar landscape.

Nepal has now opened to tourism quite a few places up along the Tibetan border that we had to sneak into years ago. You could visit Muktinath which has been a pilgrimage site for thousands of years and you can see a holy flame burning where a spring emerges from the ground. It looks like they have a road up the Kali Gandaki river valley now, when I was there it was just foot paths high up on the side of the valley.
