There may eventually be a wrap-up post, although the degree of more recent adventuring makes that seem slightly unlikely, so I thought I’d close with a couple pictures. First, the delicious plov we enjoyed at our farewell party. So good!
And finally, a closing picture of my final step of acclimatization and acculturation. A haqiqiy o’zbek qizi! A real Uzbek girl. Playing a g’ijjak, I might add. Dean, who took lessons all summer, was far more proficient.
And with that, I bid a fond farewell to Tajikistan. Until next time, whenever that will be. All bets are for sooner rather than later, whether I like it or not.
