Photographer's Note

Going by bus through Turkmenistan's capital Ashgabat is not as straight forward as it is in many other places.

When entering a bus at "The 21st century is the golden age of the Turkmen" bust stop, changing at "Golden Age Market" and again at "Golden Age Restaurant" and leaving at "A drop of Water is a crumb of Gold" you have in fact just done a bus-trip through large parts of the capital.

You can also enter the bus at "The Turkmen Horse" - change at "Independence" and leave your bus at "Ruhnama". In this case your trip was a short-distance one - around the Park "Turkmen Independence" only. But the mentioned trip allowed you to marvel at the following:
Monument of Independence,
Bus stop of the Turkmen Neutrality,
Monument of Ruhnama,
Fountain of the Golden Age
and the "Museum of the Presents of the Leaders of the World to the Presidents of Eternaly Neutral and Independent Turkmenistan, Saparmurat Turkmenbashi the Great and the Esteemed Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov".
