    ... of Amir Timur & other family members. The next place was the majestic Registan, which you may recognise from the photos. There are 3 main buildings around a huge square, a marketplace in the past, part of the Silk Road route. The medressa on the left is 15th century, the other 2 17th century. Any earlier buildings had been destroyed by Genghis Khan. These mosques and medressas were elaborately decorated and quite incredible. We visited a carpet ...

    ... it technically wasn't there in the first place, how do you complain to somebody has taken money when all the money you've declared is there? In the end the customs officers took our forms at face value and were more interested in searching the car for drugs (of which none were found).

    ... Dor madrassah stands opposite Ulugbek's and was intended to outshine it but in our opinion the tiger-lions on its front are much less tasteful than the stars. Some of the side rooms house local artisans selling their wares, including a musician who gives us a demonstration of several traditional Uzbek instruments.

    After lunch we look at the monster sized Bibi Khanym mosque, built by Timur's chief wife as a surprise while he was away at war. ...
