Happy birthday, Pas!

We landed a little after 7am in Ashgabat. We taxied for a long time, past the old airport terminal (which we learned is called the "old new airport" and looks to be of Soviet vintage) to the “new old airport”. We rushed off the plane and were first in line to buy our visas. The process was very efficient, and the visa officer wished Pas a Happy Birthday! Then we paid for the visas, which was a little confusing, but did not take too ...

... hand knotted rugs, a huge dome, and four 91 meter minarets, with '91 to commemorate the independence from the Russians in 1991.

Next, we visited several sites around the city. The amount of construction here, all in shiny white marble, is amazing. We stopped at a park with a gold statue of the meglomaniac former president Niyazov and a huge statue of the famous Akhal-Teke horses that are native to the area. We next stopped at the marriage ...
