Today was a big drive day. We left camp at 6 am for Khiva, Uzbekistan, another UNESCO World Heritage site.
Over and over again-
This woman is cleaning the gas station parking lot-
We crossed into Uzbekistan and immediately noticed a difference-there were people walking around, smiling and talking. Also, the land, almost immediately, became arable. This is rice, if you can believe that!
And cotton! Pickers included!
Then, all of a sudden, more desert, however, the left side of this photo is arable!
Finally we arrived in Khiva, just in time for a few beer and a few great shashlyk and a tomatoe/cucumber salad!
