Hi Everyone

What a pleasure to be involved once again with Uzbekistan. So many memories evoked as I look through photographs trying to decide which ones to use and all those sights and experiences beckoning! As always fabulous textiles and crafts await us in homes and village workshops around the country… and of course there are new friendships to be made. The photographic opportunities are stunning and we will be welcomed by all whom we meet on our travels, making for a very personal journey. This has been a really great trip to put together!
