The start of a Silk Road adventure...

by David Swatton September. 10, 2012 4353 views

The trip spanned parts of three countries - Uzbekistan, the Kyrgyz Republic and western China - covering the central Asian section of the old caravan route known as the Silk Road.

These pictures are all of Khiva, the beautiful city at the beginning of our tour.

The route of my trip…

Muḥammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī, born in Khiva… from whom we got algorithms…. thanks Muḥammad!!

So when I said I thought it was one of the 'Stans' I was more of less right.. you have managed to visit nearly all of them! The details on those minarets and temples are mind blowing.. what a fantastic trip!
