Samarkand to Tashkent, Uzbekistan, 5 October 2018.
(Click on any image to see it in a larger size.)
We are en route from Samarkand back to Tashkent, where we catch a plane to Istanbul. These images are all taken from a moving car. Some are less than technically perfect, but still included for a feel of the journey.
There were a few military vehicles on the road. I wouldn’t have taken a photo like this in Ladakh, not that far from the Chinese border, but felt safe to do so here.
Fruit for sale on the side of the road.
The truck looks overloaded but perhaps the load is not all that heavy.
A variety of products for sale on the way.
I’m not able to translate the signs.
Stork nests on a telegraph pole.
It seems the products are delivered by trucks – or, maybe, a donkey and cart.
Many people must still be pursuing largely traditional lives because some of the vehicles on the road are less than high tech.
He’s carrying a pole; it’s not to beat the donkey.
This car wasn’t moving very fast either.
