    ... life was based in an order by Allah, the Muslim doctrine, etc. what struck me about these two was that neither one mentioned devotion to Uzbekistan -Denis was a Russian; Dylia a Muslim. Interesting. We are currently in a holding pattern waiting for the winds to decline before we can land. Our pilot assures us we have plenty of fuel.

    Scholars have estimated that 40 million people died in the Mongol conquests of the 13th century, ranking just below the death toll of WWII and the Chinese famine under Mao in the all-time list of Worst Things People Have Done to Each Other.

We asked our guide and he said it was a Tajik custom and most of the people in Samarkand were of Tajik origin.
