Day 275: Arriving on the Silk Road

Mir-i-Arab Medressa, Bukhara

Uzbekistan! Finally, after the most corrupt chain of taxi drivers at yesterday’s border who cheated us and stopped us from hitching rides with trustworthy Irani trucks.

Don’t you feel like you’re on the Silk Road?
Bukhara is our first stop in the country and also the first signs of the ancient Silk Road. Beautifully aged Islamic architecture and caravanserais dominate the old city, it’s not hard to imagine what it must have been like during the prosperous days of the Silk Road. This used to be a main post on the famous route where caravans arrived from the east, trading silk for precious metals coming from the west.

I’m excited, I think Uzbek is gonna be a blast and possibly more beautiful than Iran!
