The images below are of the Kalon Minaret in Bhukara, Uzbekistan. It was built in the 12 century. When Ghengis Khan first saw it, he was so impressed, he let it stand. Then he promptly trashed the rest of the city. Kyla and Cody are standing below it. It was closed for renovations the week we were there. Apparently, if you bribe a guard in Cairo, you can come back at night and climb one of the pyramids. That doesn't work in Bhukara.
