We haven't done too much yet except sit around and eat and drink tea and talk. Although last night we went to a disco until after 4am. The most interesting people watching I've ever seen. More on that later when I have time. A riotous night to say the least.
Odd thing-I am sending this blog thru my mom. Not because I can't get into blogger, but because I keep getting logged in as a couple different people instead of myself! Very strange.
All is well, so no worries. It's not nearly as cold as I'd expected, though I did spend $30 for a big warm jacket. It kinda feels like springish back home. Only colder. Don't ask.
My flight here was beautiful-I saw Tibet, the Himalayas, the Indian Sea and even the mountains bordering Pakistan and Afghanistan (no sign of bin laden. I looked). All beautiful and very rugged.
Tashkent is a semi-typical big city. I don't stand out too badly as there are many Russians (the main language in Tashkent?). It's very very interesting. Updates later. Gotta go meet Granny
