Posting on my other blog about the giant golden statue of Turkmenbashi reminded me of the one person I know who has actually seen it, former work colleague Gordon. You may recall that last year I mentioned how he was going to drive off to Ulan Bator in a shitey car, for charity. I never said anything about him coming back, so maybe you have been worrying that he is still somewhere in central asia? Fear not, he made it back alive.
Pictures shamelessly lifted from the website set-up to chronicle the adventures of Gordon and his partner in crime, on which you can still donate money to his featured charities.
