Friday, April 29th, Bukhara, Uzbekistan


It's hot here, and we're resting in the lobby of the hotel at 3pm.  All morning, we drove or walked to a palace of the last Emir (which contained an outer and inner courtyard, large garden, meeting rooms, living quarters, harom, and a personal minaret), Ark Citadel, Chasma and Samani Mausoleums, and Bukhara's famous covered dome markets.

Yesterday, we stopped by the Kayla Mosque and Minaret, a synogogue containing a 1,000 year old Torah, and the Maghoki Atter (Central Asia's oldest surviving mosque), and it wasn't any cooler.

It hasn't stopped Pat from shopping, and we're beginning to worry about carrying it all back home.  We looked into shipping, but decided to carry instead.  I think our carryons just became about ten pounds heavier.
