    Random stuff that may be of interest. - every country we visited had stray cats and dogs (okay, not London). Most of the dogs looked the same! In Georgia, some dogs and cats had tagged right ears; the animals were considered government property and there was a fine if anyone red them.

    ... Cemetery and Avenue of Mausoleums

    Refreshed, we walked up the road and through the enormous cemetery with mostly black up-right headstones with pictures of the deceased etched into it. The most interesting to me were the ones who died before the 1970's as they still wore the traditional costumes and hair coverings.

    ... I still didn't buy anything, though.
    B: It was painful to leave behind such beautiful ceramic art. I just had to console myself that I would certainly embark on a sole shopping trip through central Asia in the future! We also received an education in the parandja. Our fellow traveller India was chosen to model this tent-like garment. Similar to a burqa, the parandja is made of horsehair and was worn by women in this part of the world ...
