Samarkand, Uzbekistan

This is in Samarkand. About 200 miles from the Afghan border. The kids were our diplomatic attention-getters, especially because of Kyla’s hair. In this town, probably one out of three people wanted to talk to us. They’re extraordinarily friendly and curious and helpful. But, honestly, the attention started getting to be a bit much. Cody did an admirable job of shifting people’s attention away from his green eyes by asking them where they were from; ie., “leave me alone.”

Edna and the kids are standing in the centre of this picture. This mosque is open to the public.
I will add more info later. Enlarge these images for great detail.
