I’m going to try and post photos of Dushanbe and Tajikistan before I go to give everyone a taste where I’m going. I’m going to pull these off the web and try to give credit where it’s due, but if you’re an author and want me to take a pic down, I will.
First off is Dusbanbe’s Haji Yakub mosque:
You can see the Hissar mountain range to the north of the city too. Of course, I can’t find where I grabbed this photo from, so my apologies for that.
UPDATE: I found the website I grabbed this photo from, its from the Luedtkes’ family website where they post pictures from their various trips.
