Today we left Tashkent (Hotel Uzbekistan) to drive to Samarkand. Fairly dry scenery gave way to some farmland.
One of the features were the storks that were nesting on the power staunches.
Arriving in Samarkand we checked into the hotel and then proceeded mid afternoon to tour Registan Square. The tile work and beauty of the buildings was amazing. The oldest of the madrassahs housed the astronomy work of Ulugh Beg, grandson of Tamerlane.
We also then went to the mausoleum of Tamerlane (Amir Temur) and again the building was beautiful.
Dinner at a local restaurant was fantastic…local families dining and live music!
