Turkmenistan: In Isolation

17 June 2018


Take a few glimpses at Turkmenistan. This Central Asian state is rarely featured in western media so much of the architecture of its capital Ashgabat – grandiose and glittering – will seem almost like something from a science-fiction movie.  Plus its terrain is unforgiving and unwelcoming, and includes the Darvaza crater – otherwise known as the gateway to hell.   Digital nomad Pete R created this cinematic piece which will stay with you a while.
