    Would you wash your dishes with Barf??

    OK, this isn't a shop, but Barf brand cleaning products, produced in Iran, but labeled and marketed in ENGLISH are available in all stores in Uzbekistan. For those of you unfamiliar with the word "barf" in American English, it refers to the actions of emptying your stomachs contents by the same method which it entered (more commonly known as vomiting or throwing up). This wouldn't have made me laugh so hard had it not been labeled entirely in English for apparently English speaking consumption. Some brand manager didn't do their homework....

    Cow heads, get your cow heads here!!!!

    The Chorsu bazaar has pretty much everything in one place, spices, vegetables, fruits, cow heads, linens, hand made metal duct work, traditional baby beds, musical instruments....

    What to buy: A great place to buy that sheep tongue or cow head you have been looking for. Do beware of the crowds and keep tack of yoiur personal belongings, it would be easy to get pickpocketed here!

    What to pay: All prices can be haggled here.
