Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan with more than 2 million inhabitants and arrival/departure destination. Industrialized apartment blocks, post-socialist pomp, wide roads and surprisingly green. Our highlight was the vibrant bazar.
When jokes become reality... After this phrase having been around for some years, Binis mom finally decided to take on the plan of visiting a cinema in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan. Which was accomplished. Obviously you start with the most exotic destination if you have the idea to visit all the places showing up in movie trailer for the European arthouse cinema network. A family trip with Binis parents and sister to Uzbekistan to visit a movie theater in central asia and remnants of the silk road as a bonus - we decided to join the trip.
