    ... a rather modest harem of 45 women. Young women were recruited around age 12 and were kicked out by age 25 if they hadn't had a child. This generated a lot of jealousy in the harem. If one girl was shown much favor by the emir, she was subject to harassment and perhaps even poisoning by her harem mates. The women's courtyard featured a pond where the young women would cool off. Apparently, the emir would sit on a balcony overlooking the pond and, if one of ...

    ... one provincial border check point after another. At a level crossing a long queue of trucks and cars builds up before the train goes by; the free-for-all that ensues when the barriers are raised would have seemed blood-curdling a month ago, now we take it in our stride.

What made ...

After a bit of close watching, I decided it was time to return to the hotel before dark so I said good bye to the men.

    Back at the hotel, I met up with Sam, Mindy, Bree, and Linc and we went to dinner at the Maroqand restaurant. I had noticed ...

    Today was to be action-packed! Now Samarkand has been a trading crossroads for about 2500 years now. It is one of the archetypical Silk Road cities. Alexander the Great is quoted as saying in 329 B.C.: "Everything I have heard about Samarkand is true, except it is even more beautiful than I had imagined". I'd have to agree even today. The heyday of Samarkand was most probably during the reign of Timur the Great (a.k.a. Tamerlane), a bloodthirsty and brutal ruler and conqueror of ...
