Uzbek authorities have for years discouraged the “alien” Valentine’s Day celebrations such as lovers sending cards to each, saying that young people should instead enjoy the poetry of 16th-century regional conqueror Zahiruddin Muhammad Babur. And celebrate his birthday on that day, if they need some excuse to partey! Single Japanese men by the way are completely agree with Uzbekistan officials on that!2c6dcd7a641054016bbd8fd5821f2caebb23af7452189ff6b03c410770ea086d44037569fcd07844c5063c8db4c2f7ca185de1513986f4aeb7bde1c5cd7592fa Yet some contumacious citizen make up their vehicles with St. Valentine camouflage. 9bdce0d48191b697bad0cda686adf792434e10355765c1300d4ad451d9614c64A couple with doing fotoshoot posing in front of what apears to be Buick of 1937

About Ahmed Islamov

I was born and raised in Uzbekistan and lived in that country for about two thirds of my life. I left the country about 14 years ago but sustained tight bonds with my family and friends living there. I know and communicate personally with hundreds of people including blue-, white- or pink-collar workers. I am naturally very attached to and concerned with everything that is going on there.
