Astronomy, plov and farewells

... elders.

The journey continues with the usual sights: cows graze on the motorway verges and the odd donkey is ambling unconcernedly down one of the carriageways. At one stage we are startled by a carillon of message tones: having not had a mobile signal since arriving in Uzbekistan, all our phones come to life simultaneously welcoming us to Kazakhstan as we get close to the border. Stalls by the roadside sell water, honey and dried curd cheese balls. We are ...

Arrival in Khorezm and Khiva

Uzbekistan is big - it is 718 kilometers from Tashkent to Urgench, which is why we are doing this bit by air rather than on the ground. It is the last internal flight of our trip. This airport is refreshingly

Born to a family of Timurid nobles, Babur became king of Samarkand at a fairly young age, but not for long. He was driven out by the Uzbek Shaybanids and lost control of Samarkand ...

... everywhere, there are watermelons and honey melons at each corner of the streets and we discover the pleasure of Uzbek chai (green tea) at each break. At night as we are staying in the same guesthouse as the 2 French girls we came with from Khiva, we decide to try some Uzbek wine... drinkable but not comparable to European wines...
