    ... of Amir Timur & other family members. The next place was the majestic Registan, which you may recognise from the photos. There are 3 main buildings around a huge square, a marketplace in the past, part of the Silk Road route. The medressa on the left is 15th century, the other 2 17th century. Any earlier buildings had been destroyed by Genghis Khan. These mosques and medressas were elaborately decorated and quite incredible. We visited a carpet ...

    The Golden Road to Samarkand

    ... me ordering one lot of pancake(s) and getting one pancake!

    In the next forty minutes we were to realise how much the Turkmen government dislikes advertising where it's border crossing points are. After one wrong turn and a twenty minute drive down a bumpy, dusty track we spotted a building that by now was familiar to us as a border control.

Cleverly, he discovered that elephants were afraid of fire while camels weren't. So he put his troops on camels with ...

    I am worried that in the next few days I will be taking millions of pictures. Way more than I can share. Samarkand is an ancient town full of beautiful blue tiled mosques and medressas, the colors are irresistable cobalts and aquas. Not everything is ancient though. They have redone a lot of streets into sort of Disney pedestrian ways which are too clean and perfect, and also cut down alot of huge old Plane trees in the process. Not too ...

    The Modern Silk Road

    After breakfast (which we had in the courtyard this morning), we met our driver and started out of town. We had a long drive to Samarkand, mostly along a straight stretch of highway through towns and agricultural fields. We spent the day spotting what donkeys were carting (a Lada and a cow were our favorites) and generally being very silly. There were three stops: a ceramics factory and a caravansary, then lunch.
