this was the second leg continuing along the "Silk-road" route. Back in 2011, the Caucasus (Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan) was covered. This time it is Tadzhikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkministans' turn. Coming into Uzbekistan over the Fan mountains and Tajikistan. In short we managed to cover Samarkand, Bukhara in addition to Tashkent, the capital. In short - wow - Uzbekistan minus the corruption must be the most see-worthy in all of the Central Asian countries. The country is absolutely packed with ancient sites.
