Assalom Navruz! - Springtime celebrations
About two weeks ago, I was being driven by a grumpy man to
my Russian lesson. As we drove down the road, I noticed that the entire city

Misery Zoo
Last weekend, we decided to go to the botanical gardens.

and requesting that I check with her for strange...

New house, new light fittings.
Hello, fans! I am back in Tashkent and have moved into a house with four other young women. There are several reasons for this, including a flat invasion during my

Christmas Horror. And rafts.
I’m home! How exciting for everyone involved. So exciting
for my parents that, after the first day of being around me, they both became
overwhelmed and spent the day in bed being unwell. Sorry, mum and dad. And

international experience, due to two occurrences: a ‘UN day’ at school and a
joint birthday party. “What is a UN Day?” I hear you cry in desperation for

about it. This time, however, I will discuss the pertinent issue of clothes

anything! So here’s a really exciting blog about day-to-day life in Tashkent . Contain

Teachers' Day and The Great Fishing Ordeal of 2014
Anyone who reads this blog
and doesn’t know me (and hasn’t read the ‘about’ page, shame on you) might be

Lavash-ally is all around.
Before we begin, I have two
things to break to you. The first is that I stole the pun about lavash. The
