    A very big homage to Lenin

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This statue is probably Khojand's biggest "tourist" attraction. To understand how big it really is if you look closely you can see a person to the left of the statue

    Yummy

    by Backpackin_Mac Written Jan 1, 2004

    The restaurant is situated on the bank of the Syr-Darya river. Because of that you get a nice breeze if you sit near the window. The waiter will calmly explain the menu with gestures and grabbing various ingredients to explain.To save him work we jstarted to ask him to choose.

    Favorite Dish: Beautiful shaslyk and soup

    A Khojand trolley bus

    by Backpackin_Mac Written Jan 1, 2004

    A fun (but slow) way to travel around Khojand is to take a trolley bus. If you wish to catch a train out of Khojand you should take a trolley bus to the end of the line (Head south) which will cost 10 dirams (.1 of a somoni). The boy in the picture was helping his father during the school holidays. If you look at the picture closely you can see the boys father posing behind the steering wheel.

    Aprt from the colourful Tajiks the wash of green you will see everywhere very well could be a watermelon seller. During summer all they do is sell watermelons. They even bring out a bed and sleep beside their watermelons on the road.

    What to pay: You can pick up a watermelon for 1 somoni.

    A Tajik beauty

    by Backpackin_Mac Written Jan 1, 2004

    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.

    We were lucky to beforend a local man who invited us around to his house for lunch. In the picture you will see his beautiful wife. She studied english at University until she married her husband at the age of 21. Even though she had never spoken to foreigners before her English was excellent. It is a shame that the husbands backward way denies this intelligent woman the freedom to leave the house.
