In October 2013, my colleague Saranna and I took a couple of sick days to travel to Uzbekistan to see the “most cultured” country of Central Asia.
We traveled to Bukhara, which was my favorite part of the trip, Samarkand, including an illegal run up a minaret tower for a better view of The Registan, and a walk around the odd town of Tashkent to round out an excellent short trip. Click on any link for the related story.
We told our friends “in the know” to tell our other coworkers that we had eaten some bad plov and had to take a few days off. Funny thing is, we actually ate some bad plov in Tashkent and actually had to take a few days off when we returned. It made my hashtag of #uzbekplovsickness all the more ironic, which is the point of hashtags, right?
