Samarkand, Uzbekistan | 18 September, 2006 | $10 USD
I looked back in time for the pose I wrote about Samarkand and was surprised to realize there isn’t one! How could I not tell you all about this historic place? Often times when there was something special I wanted to write about while I was on the road I would put it off until I had time to do the topic justice. All too often that meant I never posted.
This room opened up to an open air courtyard where most people in the hostel ate dinner family style. It was great for meeting new travelers and where I met my travel partner to Tajikistan. This was also where I ran out of sketchbook pages and you can see where I’ve started assembling a new book out of drawing paper I bought in Kyrgyzstan.
