Lunch by the Aral Sea

I don't usually "borrow" my husband's photos, but here's where he was at lunch time today: in a yurt, by the Aral Sea.

Click on the photo to bring it up full size -- you can see the candy in the candy dish, the apricots, the embroidery on the musician's headdress .... and the stunning tent bands around the inside of the yurt. The instrument she is playing is called a dombra

Do you have a hat like that, Maryjo? ;-)
