10 Colors of Uzbekistan

Colors of Uzbekistan

Posted on November 14, 2011 by

It’s going to cost you 50 dollars to get to Samarkand from Tashkent (a 300-kilometer drive) by taxi, which is like nothing if compared with Moscow prices. On the way there you’ll come across piles of melons of all kinds which they sell along the roads, so if you happen to pass by, pull up to taste some!

The road runs through hills.

People sell home-made honey…

… and apples grown by themselves up to December.

Gur Amir.

In Tamburlaine’s mausoleum.

The tomb of the heirs to the Empire.

Gur Amir became a prototype for many other architectural monuments.

The moulding technique is very complicated and now it’s lost. This is papier-mache; the paper is 500 years old!

    A beautiful collection of pictures. At twenty cents for a car boot full of cotton it is a miracle to me that there is a cotton industry.
