The Big Year Out-Da Lat Crazy House

One of my favourite places in Vietnam was the hilll station town of Da Lat. Cool and friendly I enjoyed the atmosphere of the town and this utterly crazy and weird guesthouse. Yes you can stay in it and you can just look around if you want to. Very Hansel and Gretal!

The Big Year Out-Aydar malikmadove Musician in Tajikistan

Ayadar Malikmadove is the leader of the village of Yamg near Langar in Tajikistan. During my tour through the Wakhan Valley we stopped in Yamg and were treated to Ayadar's famous hand crafted Guitars used for traditional folkk music of this area. I was very honoured to be allowed to video him performing, and to have been a part of this moment. He also is curator for a small and personal museum of the history of the area and it's people. If you are planning a trip through the Wakhan Valley Ayadar's place is a must stop point.
