... destination is the Timurid family mausoleum, Gur-i-Amir. We can tell that we are at a very important spot as the cost of a photo permit has inflated to 3000 Sum. It is well worth the price though - the simple but beautiful mosaic work and the turquoise ribbed dome are amazing.

This evening we went to a light show at the Registan with champagne. It was very beautiful. The evenings here are very cool with the temperature being about 66 degrees F.

All in all a GREAT day!
