This is our first entry into the Republic of Uzbekistan.  We crossed from near Jetisay (Kazakhstan) into the Jizzakh Oblast.  This region of Uzbekistan is fed by a network of canals, allowing them to cultivate enormous quantities of cotton, wheat, and watermelons.  Next was the ancient city of Samarkand, then departure into Tajikistan.


Dostlik and surrounds

Venturing through the Jizzakh Oblast - Gagarin, Dostlik, and a visit to the lake.
