Slightly Sick in Samarkand

... a sheep fur hat for $30, and a carved business card holder for $10) but I'm holding off to do my shopping in the next city of Bukara. I would have probably walked further today but it was so cold today and also sprinkling much of the day.

Barb left to go back to the hotel so I decided to walk around the old Jewish quarter. Our guide had told us there were at one time 30,000-40,000 Jews in the city and now there are 164. This was supposed to be the old part of ...

... for two. Taxi to our hotel not possible because the driver didn't understand us at all,however, he took us to the Registan and from there John, the excellent map reader as he truly is, got us to our B&B, Antika ($45).
