Tajikistan: Travelogue Impressions

There is interesting story of an American woman who travels around Tajikistan and writes a travelogue. It seems like she is not really happy with the service in this country but she loves to talk to people and know about their life and traditions. In two days she had so much to say…

Another tourist, drysdales visited Hissar. He went to a museum and looked at old costumes, footwear, earthen wear and even the chain mail and sword of a warrior. There was a paved courtyard with many small, off shoot rooms. Some of the embroidery work was in interesting and colourful designs. The doors leading into the museum were wooden and carved with detail.

Dan and Audrey visited Khorog and they are telling us about their flight from Khorog to Dushanbe. In they post they have some good photos and a video with the first 30 seconds from the taxi and takeoff of the previous day’s flight and next 90 seconds are mid-air.

Also the past two weeks there were made some good shots by people who visited the country: TrekEarth (Saghirdasht pass) and babasteve who never gets tired of photographing.
