    Day 10: Tashkent, Uzbekistan

    July 30, 2016 in Uzbekistan ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

No one spoke the language but this 300 look a like busdriver recognised the Hotel. Great with no Sums (local currency) a gave him 10 dollar. After 2 stops he gave it back and explained with a calculator that it was only 3000 sum = half a dollar. Yeah free ride, I slept great after this. Breakfast was good but with a few people in a to big area. It's representing the whole country I think. It's build wide and open and with big buildings but not high. Only my hotel with 17 floors and twice as tall as all the rest. Walked through Tashkent and had a real nice day, playing my music and found a good cosy coffee restaurant thing. What they say is true, they have a lot off beautifull women here. Only a few match my taste but none could ever seduce me ;-).
