Entlang der Seidenstraße und Kontrollstaaten

“To survive an Uzbekistan trip without any diaria is almost impossible” was written in our guide book. And at one day in Uzbekistan all of my three friends where sick. Only I was fine. So we couldn’t really enjoy Samarkand with its breathtaking buildings. During a visit in a mosque one police guard let us for some money climbing the minaret (tower of a mosque from where the Muezzin is calling for praying). We had some amazing views towards the city!

We continued from Samarkand towards Tajikistan. Normally the boarder point is only 60 KM away from Samarkand but it is closed and we had to do 250 KM more. And also in Uzbekistan the streets are in a bad condition! It was not as extreme as in Turkmenistan where you could find a huge pothole on the street without any warning, but still very bad. We passed several cotton fields and cotton is one of the main export products in the country. Picking the cotton end of September is a national event! Everybody has to help and is mandatory for everyone to pick a special amount of cotton. For sure for some money you are not obliged to do so.
