Tajikistan is beautiful and inspiring. It is quite overwhelming at times, as expected, but it really is a whole new world to be discovered. The sights are great and the mountains are wonderful, but what I really loved the most were the people. They are so polite and sweet. Everyone I met went out of their way to make me feel welcome and at ease. Definitely the kind of hospitality you don’t see everyday.
If anyone’s thinking about going to that region I definitely recommend it. Do make sure you stay for a minimum of two weeks though, so you can visit the Pamir Mountains. They are located in between Tajikistan, Pakistan, Afghanistan and China and include a bit of the Himalayas. Unfortunately, I only had 10 days and didn’t quite make it over there. Maybe next time.
Lots of love from Lisbon and a very happy Easter.
I just returned from a 10 day trip to Tajikistan.
It was wonderful. Central Asia, with all its contrasts, sights, amazing mountains and truly delightful people, is really another world.
While I’m sorting through my pictures and preparing a more detailed post, here’s a little sketch I did whilst over there. I left it as a present to my dad, who has been working in Dushanbe for the past year or so.
Lots of Love from Lisbon.
I’m off again! This time I’m going so far away I don’t even know how I’m going to get there in one piece.
I’m going to Dushanbe in Tajikistan for one week, with a nice two days stop in Istanbul on the way there. I have no idea what to expect, which is very exciting. Come on… Dushanbe?! Who goes there? I must be the only Brazilian girl ever to try this! (Feeling very self-important right now. Ignore me. Hahaha.)
Anyway, I’m bringing along a sketch book, a large supply of sharp pencils, my loyal and very comfortable AllStars and a camera that’s just dying to snap away.
Traveling inspires and enriches the soul and I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity. This should be interesting to say the least. I promise to come back with lots of sketches and photographs to post here.
Lots of Love from Istanbul and Dushanbe. Well, almost :)
