Tajikistan: how mysterious, how far from everything I knew, and how interesting to speak to the locals in the street. Only if you have lived through the transition you are able to understand what’s going on in their minds. Is freedom in the urban jungle preferable to the relative comfort of socialism?
Ever tried to beat these locals? I convinced myself they manipulated the pool and Ping-Pong tables to beat outsiders. I really don’t like to lose, but I did - at both games!
