Turkmenistan: Travelogue

Categories: Central Asia & Caucasus, Turkmenistan, Humor, Media & Journalism, Travel

Joshua Kucera just visited Turkmenistan, which he entered rather smoothly from Azerbaijan [1]. Josh visited a burning gas crater [2], the Museum of Fine Art [3] in the capital Ashgabad, and had a tour guide who wasn't quite getting [4] the numbers right. He also acquainted himself [5] with the (rather barren) local media landscape and found that ex-President Turkmenbashi's is quite like Anakin Skywalker [6].
