Khiva die Juwele Zentralasiens

Deise Stadt ist mit Abstand eine der traumhaftesten, die wir je gesehen haben. Voellig erschoepft angekommen, da die turkemnischen Grenzwaechter uns nicht ueber den Weg trauten und jedes einzelne Gepaeckstueck der 15 Overlandtrip-Reisenden durchsuchten, verflielen wir dennoch alle sogleich dem Charme dieser Stadt. Die Altstadt ist auf einem kleinem …

We spent the following morning driving to reach the town of Khiva which used to have a booming slave trade. Suse flew off to the capital Tashkent that night to sort out our Russian visas so we had two nights booked in Khiva then one night free the following. Khiva is close to the town of Moynaq (as in a few hours drive) which used to be the seaside town of the Aral Sea. Turkmenistan has stolen the water of the Aral Sea over the years for their ...

... an early sound amplification system based on wide-mouthed jars embedded in the walls. An exhibit of old costumes in a 20th century madrassah, and another of early photographs of Khiva in the first ever secular school are also fascinating. We discover that both school and madrassah were built by the last prime minister of Khiva, Islam Khoja, who was then promptly executed by the Khan for being too popular. This same Khan also apparently requisitioned the beautiful mausoleum of ...

Khiva - first stop Uzbekistan

... non-touristy bit of Khiva... a lot different. For lunch we thought we would be brave and eat at one of the stands at the Bazaar. We had a samosa and pie... and then a kebab which looked like meat wrapped in pastry. It turns out it was mutton wrapped in fat. It was hard going, and that night when I smelt mutton being cooked, my stomach did a little flip. I wonder whether the smell of mutton will always have the ...
