Khujand, Tajikistan - Polarsteps

We depart from lake Iskanderkul in the morning, traveling to Khujand. The road is beautiful, through the Fan Mountains and next to the Sarafshan river. We stop for lunch and arrive in Khujand in the early afternoon. Khujant is hot, hotter, hotst.. We are not made for these temperatures... We go to the bazar (walking there was not a goos choice since the heat is killing). We than take a taxi to the big Lenin statue and take a long detour through the regional museum of history (it has airco). In the evening we search for 'the best pizza in Tajikistan' but cannot find the restaurant.. So we have to eat shashlick again 😃
