Leaving Uzbekistan

This is just a very short post to say all is well. We have had an amazing time in Uzbekistan, made wonderful new friends in Samarkand, loved the architecture of Bukhara, enjoyed a $4 hair cut each, and made the most of our brief stay in Khiva.

The internet has been simply too slow to upload our photos so will do that once in Teheran.

We will be leaving a little bit of our hearts in Uzbekistan as we cross into Turkmenistan later today…

Heading to the Derwese and expect to camp close to the “door to hell” tonight. Considering we got to 40 degrees yesterday, today will be even hotter so I doubt we will want to stay too close!!! We’d rather make the most of seeing the night sky.

More news when we get to Teheran in about a week’s time.

It's too hot to walk around Bukhara, so why not get a hair cut and enjoy a new experience?!

  1. I thought most people having that savage a haircut had to hold up a board with their number on it – but undeniable good value on a weight for money basis. The itinerary continues to amaze.

  2. If I found all the richly coloured photos pf Samarkand stunningly beautiful, I think the monochrome Kalon minaret takes first prize. And so does the photographer – bravo!
    How scary was the hell hole? No wonder the Ancients thought that Hell was all fire.
    Knowing your natural inbuilt capacity to win hearts, I can imagine any reticence of the locals you are now meeting melting away. Bon courage for the next few days.

    PS – the haircut is lovely too.

  3. I spend a lot of time brokering hair dressers to find a reasonably priced one in Brisbane, by the hour they seem to be more than surgeons in QLD. Perhaps I should move now! Look forward to the big blog form Iran, stay safe.
