A single journey: A myriad of experiences

111

Imagine taking in a charming musical performance at the Balajan’s Children’s Music and Craft Center; visiting a Russian Orthodox church and Fine Arts Museum; enjoying dinner, a fashion show, and a musical performance organized by the creative, young students of a local fashion institute; then spending a restful night at the Damas Hotel. And this is just one day of a spectacular 25-day journey that offers delights and surprises every step of the way!


This single journey is like a trip to 4 places: the Ancient Silk Road, the former Soviet Union, contemporary Central Asia, and the future! The gas and oil-wealthy nations of Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan are building extravagant cities of futuristic architecture, which will be visited.
