Return from Uzbekistan

uzbekistan

I returned from Uzbekistan. What do you want to know about the journey? :) This is perhaps the most colorful of all countries I've visited. And completely secular. So those who warned me about wild Muslims and savage practices have absolutely no clue about which they speak. It's a pity people are so poisoned with prejudices, and I cannot understand why so many Russians have a negative attitude toward the Uzbeks. The locals were warm, open, welcoming and the country is far more civilized and advanced than I imagined. I will try to share more impressions next week...
