Day 196 (10/1/10) – Samarqand

We visit the Shah-i-Zinda today – known as the Walk of the Living King. It is a collection of royal mausoleums and monuments richly decorated in intricate tile patterns, apparently some of the best preserved in the country. The rest of the day is spent in an internet café, chasing the Chinese embassy and the airlines to find out if we do need that transit visa or not. A straight answer doesn’t seem to be forthcoming from any sources. Frustrating.
