I did notice your absence but glad to see you back! It sounds like quite an adventure. Isn't that the land of the "Silk Road" and "Genghis Khan". A once in a lifetime experience. Welcome back - you are always missed.
And bet you didn't even notice I was gone! Returned two weeks ago from a month-long fabulous trip to Central Asia...spent time in Kyrgyzstan,Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and Tajikistan. It really is another world where they still wear their national dress daily, no supermarkets outside the major cities and few even there (shopping is done at the bazaars) and lots of friendly people.
It has taken me almost two weeks to recover! But now I am ready for the next adventure.
