Samarkand, Uzbekistan: Cockroach Express-Blackouts

A travel blog entry by samber

... wondering what kept hitting me. I woke a few times myself to remove things creeping up my arms but didn't realise the magnitude of the problem until seeing a few of the little critters scurrying under some nearby luggage. We headed straight from the train to the hotel and were sorely disappointed to be told the power had just turned off and there would be no hot water until it was back on. When that would be, who knows. So instead of washing away the cockroach poop ...

... the common room of a house that was right on the main street thru the Jewish quarters. I could see many people thru the windows. There were 6 men there and 3 were playing dominoes for 1000 som per game (about 40 cents). There were several sets of tables and chairs and a flat screen TV with the Russian news on.

... boulevard Navoi (former Leninskaya) and saw lots of women working without tools to keep the grass nice and tidy. They literally did the edges by pulling up grass by hand. The president himself is coming to town later this month and it looked like a lot of sprucing up was going on. As usual sprinkling of grass everywhere. Pretty sad with more important jobs needing to get down. Roads pretty pathetic leading into Registan ...
