The last morning dawns bright and clear. As we get on the bus we notice a party of Japanese doing the same thing - and when we spot the distinctive gentleman proudly wearing a tall Kyrgyz felt hat we realise that they have been shadowing us since we left Bishkek. Ours is not a unique itinerary!

Today's surprise is the observatory of …

Khiva is a small place with a perfectly preserved 200 year old walled section, and Bukhara a city whose buildings span a thousand years. Samarkand is different again, a large modern city with a few very grand buildings from the time of Tamerlaine (died 1405). It has a much longer history: it was the Sogdian Makaranda which impressed Alexander the …

... wrongl.

[The last part of the above sentence appeared (following "It is only a myth") after I thought I was finished. I must have typed it, and the last save was about the time I went to bed…I did a virus scan, and it seems unlikely that someone had taken control of my computer, which means I must be going insane.]

In any case, after the mausoleum, we returned to the hotel. We spent the evening having coffee/tea and chatting with a British ...

Samarkand, Uzbekistan: Cockroach Express-Blackouts

This is a top pick!

... entrance to a peaceful courtyard and equally ginormous arches. A little further on is a thriving market where you're greeted by glistening smiles of locals who bare golden teeth. Something Sam's been dying to take a photo of.

... a beautiful crocheted mauve shawl made out of silk and angora.

After my salads, I walked about a mile out of town to Daniel's Tomb. This is the tomb Daniel from the Old Testament - as in "Daniel and the Lion's Den."

It was covered by a muslim cloth with Arabic writing.
