Time is Relative

Russian Signage in a Tajik Mosque in Istaravshan

This ancient city is the one of the oldest Silk Road stops in the region whose history spans across 2,5oo years.  Istaravstan is one of those places where travelers can just spend the day getting lost in this living museum.  It’s also hard not to notice the more recent Soviet presence in the city after passing a statue of Lenin or signs written out in cyrillic.

I'm a curious traveler who enjoys sharing street, architectural and landscape images that capture daily life and represent how history has made its mark on the present.
