After breakfast (which we had in the courtyard this morning), we met our driver and started out of town. We had a long drive to Samarkand, mostly along a straight stretch of highway through towns and agricultural fields.

Samarkand is a city of 800,000 souls. Tajik and Uzbek are spoken here [the former more at home; the latter, for government].

If you are not prepared to hear glowing accounts of Amir Timur, known in the West as Tamerlane, Uzbekistan is probably not a good place to visit. Here, he is the 'great ruler' and 'number one hero'.
