24th . From Tashkent International Airport to Narita International Airport early in the morning. (Return to Japan)
A local guide who can speak Japanese took care of us for 6 days.
Almost all the seats bound for Tashkent are booked.
I thought there are many people who go to Uzbekistan.
But, most of passengers were in group tour, their destinations were Great Britain, Russia, Italy, and so on.
Actually, there were only 15 people whose destination is Uzbekistan.
I couldn’t imagine Blue metropolitan with longing by the brownish town view from the window of the train.
After getting of the plane, I took a bus in our eyes.
But the bus took us to the transit lounge.
We took wrong bus. We said “Tashkent, Tashkent.””Exit!” 😛
What a scare!
After we passed customs, we closed to exit.
We looked around for searching a local guide,
There were tooooo many policemen.
They were angry with saying
“Get out SOON!”
They said persistently,so we went out from the airport at last.
then, there were many taxi drivers who touting for business before our eyes.
We won’t find the local guide.Where is he?
I found there was a crowd of people at the place like a bus terminal at some distance.
First of all, we went to there.
They were there.It’s OK.
Getting into a car, and we went to our Uzbekistan Hotel
After arriving at hotel, it was about time to have dinner.We had dinner at
Restaurant of upper floor in the hotel.
Gnocchi with a lot of herbs.
I felt there were dark atmosphere in the hotel just a little..
Where is the guests anybody else?
I wonder if there were only a few people walking on the roads.
I guess almost all people move by bus or car.
I guess there are not enough peace place to walk easily.
Although it seemed to be safety.
