Khorezmian desert, Uzbekistan


My favourite part of the Uzbekistan tour: lunch in a yurt in the Khorezmian desert, near Urgench. Then when the rest of the group climbed up to see the Topraq-Kala fort ruins, I stayed behind. No one else, except a camel which padded by ignoring me. A view for miles and miles of desert, piercing light, knife-like cold.  Utter silence. Bliss.
