Turquoise Towers (tbc...)

Currently in Khiva, where they used to swap the heads of foreigners for coats (7 for a cotton coat, 11 for silk and 22 heads for gold-embroidered silk...). Now they just over-charge for kebabs (and internet connections) and follow you around trying to sell hand-knitted socks.

Anyway, proper update email (there's much to tell!) when I find a sensibly priced and reasonably fast connection - assuming I survive the perils of the Black Desert (dun dun DUN).
