Our Last Club Adventure - Days 11-12 - Mitan Village

Handy Quick Links to our Blog Highlights

It doesn't get any sweeter than this.  We departed Buhkara and drove to a nearby ceramic factory.  There we met the family who has been making this amazing pottery for over 300 years, passing down the tradition from one generation to the other.

 Visited by Mrs. Clinton some years back.  He made her a special platter.

 The one we ALMOST bought until we were informed with would cost $125 to ship.  Sadly none of our friends would carry it home for us.
We stopped an an ancient caravan serail \(road house\) this one from 1050 AD.  The cistern still supplying water, the roadhouse in ruins.

 We then arrived a few hours later at a family home is a quiet village an hour outside or Samarkand.  We would be guests for the night.  What a charming experience.
 Lunch was set up for us outside.

 The tandor was fired up for bread.

 Mamma made plov.

 We played with the cows.
 ...and the bees.

 Ate till we burst.

 Got the sheep into their pens for the night.

 Helped make ravioli for dinner.

Slept on the floor.
 Played dress-up.
Grandfather Bahrum, 73 and head of the family.  What a character.
 Dinner after dark.
