I must apologize for taking a week to post these pictures. Allow me to add Tashkent Traveler's Health Tip #7 to my previous list: Do not climb to the top of a leaning minaret and then get probable food poisoning while still recovering from amoebic dysentery. It's just no fun. So, I've been laid up at Anna's all week ruminating over what to write about my travels. I'm honestly still not sure, so it will probably come out as a rambling mess, as usual. But, there are pictures to redeem the experience, so sit back and enjoy!

I have broken the trip into 2 entries (one for Samarkand and one for Bukhara) since there are so many pictures. This is a summary of our itinerary, if you're interested: Anna and I left Tashkent last Friday and drove to Samarkand. We left Samarkand with Karen on Saturday, and spent Saturday and part of Sunday in Bukhara before heading back to Samarkand. We planned to see more of Samarkand on Monday morning, before hading back to Tashkent, but Karen and I were both sick by then, so Anna and I ended up staying at home and heading back to Tashkent around 3:00.

I'm going to write as much narrative as I can now, but I'm going to post the pictures first. Their captions and some narrative may have to wait until a little later in the week.
