    This tip is about road-culture:

    In Uzbekistan the dominant car-brand you will encounter on the roads is the Lada, the box-like Russian car made as a copy of the Italian Fiat 124. You will see also quite many cars of the Daewoo-brand. This is not the result of Uzbek people buying treir car in Korea! Daewoo has in a joint-venture with the Uzbek authorities built a factory in the capitol Tashkent. This enormous plant of UzDaewoo produces the smalest car in the Daewoo-range, the Tico.

    Islam is now becoming an increasing influence in Central Asia, now the Russians have (largely) pulled out. Don't wear too revealing clothing for starters, though hardline attitudes have yet to take a really severe hold. Attitudes to alcohol haven't got too severe yet, but don't be too obvious, especially away from major towns.

    You will be suprised at the variety of things here. I even had pork in Tashkent! Like most central Asians, years of isolation and KGB has made the people a bit leary, but once they are sure you are a tourist they just want to talk to you about the rest of the world, and if the world knows of the great cultures that once flourished here. They also become very glad to sit for photos and show you special tresures and clothes.

    At the end of the show they will invite you to dance with them. And of course it is very impolite to refuse to these beautiful young ladies . . . .
