Samarkand, Tashkent and Ferghana, cities along the Silk Road

Some of my pictures, which I took during my travel to Uzbekistan in 2003. I visited in this year the cities Tashkent, Samarkand and Ferghana. But very important was, that I was able to visit my friends again. Friends which I made on my first journey to this region in 1996. Then I was sick as a chenchena. While sitting on a bench in Ferghana I made some wonderful friends for ever, who cared for me at that time. Since then we are friends forever. I love this part of the world along the silk road. People from Central Asia: Uzbek, Kirgyse, Kazach, Tjai, Russian, Tartar and whatever etnic background are very hospitable. I feel really very connected to my people in this part of the world!
I have added a few pictures, which I took in 1996, my first visit to Central Asia. As this was the pre-digital camera time,I scanned them from slides.
