Back in Canada

I arrived back Friday afternoon. I will be getting some stuff up about Turkmenistan and some photos from the last few weeks that I was unable to upload in Uzbekistan.

Mike emailed me a link to thisBBC article about Turkmenistan's president and his proposed ice palace. I have now seen first hand just how ridiculous some of this guy's excesses are and experienced just how hot the country is. I'll be putting photos up of the Arch of Neutrality, the world's biggest fountain and the giant monument to his book in the strange suburb of Ashgabat called Berzengi.
