[362]~[363] 2019-07-15~16 Tashkent ‘김병화농장’

I left Japan and arrived at Tashkent in Uzbekistan.

Now pilgrimage goes through Central Asia starting from Tashkent.

The next day after arrival, we searched Kim Byung Hwa museum by smart phone.

1. The distance from our shelter to the museum was 21 km. I thought it would be better for us to go on foot than by bus.

2. The weather is something to consider. The weather forecast tells daytime temperature would go up to 40 degrees.

3. We started to walk. Prof. Lee Sang Hoon joined in Central Asia pilgrimage. The building in the back is Tashkent station.

8. In terms of urban planning, Tashkent has a grand and open scale. Population density within the city is relatively low.

9. I took a selfie with people in the tea-house. They like Korea.

10. I saw an Islam temple. The statstics indicate that 80~90% of population is Muslim.

However, I can’t feel the Musilm atmohphere from the people in the street.

20. I left Korea five days ago. We enjoyed Korean dishes.

The total price of two Kimchi soups, and Tofu & Pork stew was less than 20,000 Korean Won.

21. After lunch, the temperature went above 40 degrees. Since it was not humid, the hot weather was bearable.

However, I decided to stop walking after 8 km. And we met horse-driven wagon.
