8 March -- flowers everywhere! On the Amir Temur street.
Near Oloy market. The day is sunny but not quite warm.
Got a melon -- yeah! Near Oloy market.

Amir Temur museum. The building is quite magnificent, especially inside. There aren't many items on display though.
Amir Temur. At the very centre of the city.
Administrative building (don't remember exactly what is it).
The sun is warm. One of the first days we really felt we're in the southern country (that Spring was unusually cold).
Oloy market square. People are watching the show. You can see the assistant in the black-with-white-stars robe.
Volodya is watching too :-)

Mustakillik square. You can see the globe of Uzbekistan.
