Hi all. Today I’ve pulled out some (26 in fact) photos I took in Ashgabat, the capital of Turkmenistan, last year. You’ll see statues of Turkmenbashi, the enigmatic leader who became President after independence, there’s also the mosque he named after himself and indeed a giant stone statue of the book he wrote about Turkmen history. You’ll notice an awful lot of marble – the city has the most marble in one city in the world, and the cars are all silver or white. You’ll also notice a lack of people! And that almost every roundabout is decorated in some way, shape or form! But one thing for sure, it’s no ordinary city!
Thanks for stopping by today! Please leave a comment, like, and May the Journey Never End!
