Location: The Khorezm Desert, Uzbekistan

Following the Silk Road along the Turkmenistan border

A village street, going to market with the melon crop.

The River Amu-Darya which is the border with Turkmenistan.

The city walls of the ancient settlement of Tuprak Kala.

The ossuary of Chilpyk, the dead were left on the top of the monument for a year and then the bones were collected by the family for burial.

Part of the wall

Inside the courtyard

The hill forts of Ayzakala.

Walking the walls

... it was quite uncomfortable sitting cross legged for a long period of time!

Lunch at the yurt camp....

Modern housing developments, with better irrigation, paddy fields, crops and cotton fields as we get nearer to Khiva.

The camels waiting for their rides
