... of the locale, as a male pair of our group danced with two fellow Turkmen (as opposed to Turkwomen), on the outdoor hotel bar's otherwise empty dancefloor, to the cheesiest of Western dance music; the sprightlier youths of our group possessed the ingenuity to find a nightclub until 02:30 (did I mention the national 23:00 curfew?); we old dull marrieds were spared the adventure (and the consequent exorbitant cost).
