    Theatre night

    May 10, 2019 in Uzbekistan ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    Believe it or not I went to Uzbekistan’s largest and most ornate theatre (built by the Soviets) and watched Aleko, an opera by Rachmaninov, just before going in I saw a guy who had been killed when hit by a car crossing the street, not pretty (it certainly made me more conscious when crossing roads around here).

    The price of food is quite amazing, I had a 3 course meal in a nice restaurant including 2 soft drinks for $A17 and it tasted really nice.
