Tashkent

Tashkent, Uzbekistan, 28th September 2018.
Temporary Post. No image descriptions and commentary.

It has been difficult to post during this trip. Not much time, need to first reinstall software and abyssmal internet speeds. Also, due to a software problem I can’t fix while travelling, I can’t do my semi-automated image resizing so posting is time consuming. Consequently, the rate of posting is likely to continue to be very slow.

My partner Jools and I are about to embark on a trip to Uzbekistan, Greece, Spain and north-west USA.  In due course I will post for each part of the journey under the maps below.  I may produce some temporary posts as I go but only if I have sufficient time.  Final posts will appear later (and I still have to finish final posts for Cuba and the Caribbean).
