    The kiwis had to apply for a Kazakh transit visa in the morning. After that we wanted to go to Samarkand together. Of course it was burning hot again - the country consists of mostly desert and semidesert. Also it is not really scenic in between the hot spots. Let me tell you about the currency in Uzbekistan.

    ... 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.

    Within minutes, I was nearing hypomania. While the remainder of our retinue slumbered, drooled and vacantly stared, I rocked, I scampered. Feeling a compulsive urge to listen to music of my own selection, I spent 10 minutes precariously hanging from the overhead shelf, teasing entangled earphones out of my rucksack, triumphantly brandishing the mp3 player, before discovering that the battery was dead. ...
