Journey Through Central Asia: Photo Check-In From Samarkand
MIR Tour Manager Michel Behar loves Central Asia, and enjoys sharing his passion and knowledge of this part of the world with others. He and a group of 16 travelers are exploring the five ‘Stan countries of Central Asia on MIR’s Journey Through Central Asia: The Five ‘Stans. Those ‘Stans include Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan.
Michel and his group recently visited Samarkand and surrounding areas – considered the “crown jewel” of the Silk Road. A magical moment: meeting a newly married Uzbek couple against an ancient backdrop of mosques, minarets, and mausoleums.
