    We arrived in Tashkent late afternoon, and checked into the Grand Orzu hotel. Not so grand, but quaint, with a nice outdoor restaurant. With only one day in this city, we set off early for the Chorsu Bazaar, a huge marketplace, full of buzz and friendly people. We then walked to the first of many medressas, places of learning. These buildings were covered in intricate mosaic work in a very recognisable style. We skipped the mosque because it was Friday, not ...

    You remember Amir Timur (1336 - 1405) from a couple of days ago? He was the Tartar who created an empire that stretched from Persia to the edge of Mongolia, slaughtering Mongols as he went. Thirteen military campaigns and he never lost a battle. He did have some trouble in India with the military elephants and their sharpened tusks.

    ... 8211; I’m not in the market – then got ready to depart. Our guide said we were welcome to return tomorrow, if the streets were open. I asked why they might not be open, and she said there was a delegation in town and they would close the streets.

    We were dropped near the Registan and decided to walk up past it to our hotel. It had turned overcast, but not really cool … still, no direct sun, which was ...

    ... full of a tour group but they soon left so it was just us, with some chewy pieces of meat and a yapping chicwauwa pawing at our legs. At least it made for a memorable last night in Uzbekistan. Hard to believe tomorrow we leave and move into Tajikistan. Despite some of the issues we've had along the way we've been won over by Uzbekistan. It's a country of incredible architecture, fascinating cities and beautiful people. Had we been travelling on anything more than a ...
