... of height, the highest building on Earth. Allegedly Genghis Khan was so impressed by it he had it spared. Later known as the Tower of Death it witnessed the demise of many a convicted criminal hurled from its roof tied up nicely in a sack to ease the ensuing cleanup. The Minaret looms over beautiful Mir-i-Arab Medrassa and the airy Kalon Mosque.

We really enjoyed our stroll through the old ...

Leaving late seems to be a Dragoman ritual. Rachel had asked people to get any lunch items to minimize any down time. The drill overview ...

... touring again. My favorite things from Bukhara were the tall, intricate minaret from pre-Genghis Khan, the giant Arc fortress, and the carpet store.

We also saw a gorgeous small mausoleum that was decorated not by tiles but by intricate patterns made by the way the bricks were ...
