27 July 2008: Bukhara – Samarkand

The riders of the Routes of the Olive Tree left late in the afternoon, in order to have a nice walk in the city of Bukhara, one of the most famous city of the Silk Road, after Samarkand.

Riders and participants scattered in the city and crossed each other again and again, through various and colourful bazars, spectacular monuments that give evidence to the glorious past of this commercial road’s stopover. We met and shared a lot with the very warm and welcoming local population.
