    ... to have arrived in each country at the beginning of or during a holiday, it is often difficult to tell if there's a celebration going on in the town centre or if this is an everyday occasion. Emerging from the quiet streets we came to the town square and it was alive with people and music, the smell of food wafted through the crowds and even at this late time of night the shops flooded the streets with light, turning over a brisk trade.

    ... trees, something we had not really seen since entering Uzbekistan. Our hotel was about 20 mins walk from the centre of town on a lovely wide boulevard with plenty of trees. Our guide Ben did our walking tour of Samarkand, and as usual we did get bogged down a bit in religion, but it was not too bad as we were sitting in front of some gorgeous mausoleums built by Timur for his relatives.
