Photographer's Note

The main bazaar of Samarkand located opposite the Bibi Khanum mosque. Bazaars are the centre of life in Uzbekistan. This is where anyone would go to buy anything - from bread (on the picture) to shoes and toilet paper. Most of the stuff on sale is either locally produced (food) or smuggled (clothes and footwear).

Samarkand bread is VERY tasty. One full round of bread costs under 25 cents.
