The buzkashi riders post (“a character study of the chapandaz”) may happen later today, but it may have to wait for the weekend. In the meantime, and since I’ll be laying the hash trail with Fla5her, No-Name Susannah, and Shag Hooker on Saturday morning (DH3 Run № 281), I wanted to share a view of the hilly countryside surrounding Dushanbe as seen from a trail we set a couple of weeks ago.
This is a very typical Tajik semi-rural scene, with the unterraced hillside fields, boxy houses, and towering mountains in the background. Are you glad I share these things with you? How else would you all be able to enjoy an early spring landscape in Tajikistan?
