Bread for your soldier
Some of the round loaves of bread are elaborately decorated, using a special tool to stamp a variety of designs. It is traditional to buy one of these loaves before a soldier leaves for his mandatory service. He eats a small piece of it, and the rest is nailed to an inside wall of his family’s home. When he returns safely, he has to eat the rest of it. (They have to soften it, of course!) If something happens to it before he returns, they would worry.

One thing you might notice is that many women in Tajikistan have what looks like one eyebrow. It isn't exactly one eyebrow but she has drawn a connecting line with mascara. This makes them irresistab le to Tajik men.
I asked a young and hip tajik man if he thought it made women more beautiful and he said that it did. Looks like the tradition isn't dying out.
