The photos tell the story of the new and old architecture, the markets, the people and the life. Really enjoyed it.

Thanks!
Tashkent was a great surprise and I enjoyed it a lot. People were nice, food was tasty, and there were so many nice places to visit, art galleries, old streets, mosques, big parks. I truly enjoyed it. Have you ever been to Uzbekistan?
