Uzbekistan: "Chimgan Mountains"

Chimgan Tashkent Uzbekistan

June 11, 2009

Dear Family and Friends,

In addition to “Tip the Stew,” * my friend Elias offered me a second piece of advice: “In the early morning, drive to the Chimgan area.” The first piece of advice worked well, so when I returned to Tashkent from Nukus, I also followed the second.

The Chimgan area is about an hour’s drive northeast of Tashkent . The mountains are not so high, but in the distance there are a few rugged snow-capped peaks. And in this eastern province of Uzbekistan , everything is green. Green grass, green trees, green farmlands, green mountain sides.
