Our bike travel of the highest category of difficulty over Tajikistan started from Khujand International Airport situated near the town of Chkalovsk. The city of Khujand itself is located at the distance of 11 km from its airport.
In the picture you see the square at the place where Gagarin’s Street (at the right) forks from the central Avenue of Ismoili Somoni (at the left). Here the hotel "Ekhson" (meaning "Favor" or "Gift") is situated.

itґs a nice example of new,modern architecture in this I think less known and seen on TE country.But above all itґs a perfect composition that makes the scene so pleasant and eye-catching for us!I really enjoy the perspective you chose and the way you framed the scene.Together with so lovely light and strong and nicely contrasting colors make the scene really one of a kind!
Wish You a nice sunday

it's very impressive that you made such a difficult bike travel in a hot month like August. The heat is easily felt through the strong lighting of your picture. You found a lovely point of view to present the tall building and its surroundings with the fine addition of a very nice, contrasting foreground. You've achieved superb depth and clarity without compromising the effect of the bright sunshine. The blue sky provides a relaxing backdrop and all the colours are natural and pleasant. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Добрый вечер, Сергей,
не часто встретишь тут работы из Таджикистана. Узбекистан и Киргизия еще как-то представлены. Наверное там тоже интересно. И недорого )) Интересный репортаж из "ближнего зарубежья" как говорят наши чиновники.

Tajikistan is not very popular destination for travelers so not many photos from there on TE.
Nice composition of modern hotel with flowers in the foreground and mountains on the horizon.
Good quality, well done!
Have a nice weekend,

Nice capture from your bike travel of the highest category of difficulty.
Very nice view of the square with fountain in middle ground and lovely architecture of this hotel in the background.
Flowers in the foreground enhances the sense of depth composition.
