We had an unexpected re-route on our way back from Kyrgyzstan to London. You can read more about this in the main section of the blog but to cut a long story short I needed to come back from Central Asia earlier than planned for personal reasons and so, after surviving Kyrgyz public transport, I took new flights home. However these flights took me via Moscow instead of via Istanbul which was different.
Unfortunately with a layover of only a couple of hours, and no Russian visa, we were not able to leave the airport to explore the city but there was time for some food and for Charlie to have a photo taken.
Do make sure you read the main section of the blog from Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, especially the description of the nightmare journey home which I have a feeling I will be telling for years to come!
