Continental Divide

The latest word is that Team Newyorkistan and Team Globalisation Institute were at the border circa 9am (1am EDT), awaiting entry into Kazakhstan from Russia, and, by most reckonings, into Asia from Europe. Sadly, Dr. K and Sammy T (and their ukulele) had to stay behind in Astrakhan to wait for their visa to mature, but they intend to meet up at the northern end of the Aral Sea.

By all accounts, this next stretch will be difficult -- there aren't roads so much as rocky trails through the western Kazakh desert, and cellphone coverage is light, so we may have to wait a day or three for word from our stalwart convoy.
