On this day we want to eat in the Restaurant Samarkand. Right next to it there is a small park with a Madonna monument. The space in front of it is often used by wedding couples for photo shoots.
We use the opportunity to take some pictures. Everybody was very friendly. Even if some persons look very strict, some asked us to film them. Presumably, the stern look was due to the wedding stress.
Apparently, the wedding is as important in the life of the Uzbeks, as we have already experienced in Kyrgyzstan. We wish all wedding couples the very best for their future lives.
Afterward, we changed back to the Restaurant Samarkand. The facade and the entrance area convey a pompous impression. In the restaurant, there are several premises where you can eat.
Outside on the terrace or in the large two-story dining room. On the upper floor there is also a larger hall and along a balcony, there are smaller private rooms for closed groups.
The food is tasty and typical of the country. Here one can observe well, how women take out a plastic bag and pay with bundles of money. Because in this currency you always carry a lot of bank notes. Fortunately, our loyal companion Sirojiddin Hujamuratov has solved this issue for us.
Here we can get an impression of the Uzbek joie de vivre. Some guests dance spontaneously in the dining room. The dance interludes we show in the video are definitely worth seeing!
