full of interesting snippets that add to your holiday, 16 Jan. 2011

This review is from: Uzbekistan: The Golden Road to Samarkand (Odyssey Uzbekistan) (Paperback)
Excellent book, that doesnt only cover the practical stuff, but includes fascinating extras; the horrific story of British envoys Connelly & Stoddart in Bukhara; astronomer king Ulug Beg; poetry by Alisher Navoi; biography of Tamerlane. Also has lots of evocative photos.Found it really useful during my holiday in Uzbekistan (fascinating, unspoilt country, can't recommend it highly enough for a visit) ( )
