    The Golden Road to Samarkand

    A travel blog entry by yakking_mad on Aug 05, 2014

    ... we were sat in one alcove for ten minutes to work up a sweat, at this point we were deemed warm enough to be massaged. Up first I was slightly apprehensive, from where we'd been sat we'd had a front seat view of what the massage entailed, being cracked, stretched and pounded in what seemed like something more akin to a form of torture than relaxation. Lying on a large, warm slab I was doused with warm water and then bent into shapes I didn't know I could bend to, cracked in ...

    ... was a rather modest harem of 45 women. Young women were recruited around age 12 and were kicked out of the harem 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 amir, 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 amir would sit on a balcony overlooking the ...

    We spent the whole next day driving the 750km to Samarkand. The truck is a lot slower going than a car and the roads in Uzbekistan aren't exactly the smoothest so it can be a long and bumpy drive somedays (fortunately none of us have been carsick). We reached our hotel in Samarkand at about 7pm after some touch and go moments with wires down the nearby streets. Samarkand used to be the heart of the Silk Road so nowadays is rather touristy and has a lot of sights to tick off. We ...

    ... to be about six months early for our booking! But at the back, in a delightful courtyard, we are treated to the best meal yet in Uzbekistan, the convivial mood is enhanced by plentiful vodka and many speeches are made that probably are better not remembered afterwards. But everyone is having a good time, especially our guide Nazim who must be relieved to have got us safely through the tribulations of lost rucksacks, group members going 'crook' and other ...

    ... local Uzbek tourists out and about, and whilst we thought that they were interesting and a bit exotic, they clearly thought we were!! It is the first time we have been asked for photos and caught people taking sneaky photos of us (same as we do to them!). We were like minor celebrities where people would actually stop what they were doing to watch us walk past and then wave and say hello when we stared back. We were trying to work out what was exotic about ...
