Breakfast and few more hugs from our host family in Mitan and we were off to Samarkand. It was a short drive and two hours later we were in the city storing our bags at the next hotel. Our guide Fera met us and we started off on a lovely full day tour of the city in the rain...our first truly rainy day in months. Our first stop was the astonomical observatory dating back to the 1400's.
