So, of course the first day is going to be about Uzbekistan. I've lived next to Uzbekistan for more than two years and have yet to set foot in it, and I don't think that'll change before we leave, but we'll get there someday to fulfill the mission of this blog. Not really about that last part. I just liked the line from the poem.
|First is Bukhara. Even though Samarqand's in the title, I'm at least as interested in going to Bukara.|
|Here's the Registan in Samarqand. For the record, I spell is Samarqand because I learned Arabic before I learned Russian or Uzbek.|
|And here's Khiva. I wouldn't want to live here quite so much, since it's a little out of the way, but I'd take anything in Uzbekistan. Here's the source for this photo.|
