THE ARK OF BUKHARA

ark-of-bukharaThe ”Ark” was the palace-fortress of Bukhara rulers since 500 BC.  The ancient Silk Road oasis has a history of 5,000 years.  Today Bukhara is in Uzbekistan, one the Five Stans of Central Asia.  Each of the five – Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrghizstan, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan – are uniquely enchanting.  Together they comprise one of the most culturally, historically, and scenically spectacular, yet mysterious and unknown, regions on our Earth.  Let me know if you’d like to experience all five with me this coming May 2021.
