Pictures from Uzbekistan


I have only a few days left of my 19 days in Uzbekistan. It has meant going all the way to the Aral Sea from Tashkent and back again. I will finish my stay here with a few days in the Fergana Valley, before crossing into Kyrgystan and then on to China.

I have tried to take pictures of people but the Uzbeks seem to love their picture taken with a cell phone but as soon as the big camera comes out, they look more … hesitant. Buildings and nature don’t have issues with that, which is why the pictures turned out the way they did. I will work on that.

That said, I have loved my stay here and I hope more people come to visit Uzbekistan and get to know some of the very interesting history that has been taking place here over the centuries.

Enjoy!
