Some things never change. I’ve posted this photo a couple times of my mom in the early 60s, walking on New York’s Upper West Side, presumably to catch a cab to the airport.
And it seems a propos to post it again, as she departs tonight for the Stans with a couple of friends. After an 8 hour flight from the US to Frankfurt, they’ll board a direct flight to Almaty, Kazakhstan. From there they’ll move on to these places:
Kyrgyzstan (Issyk-Kul and Bishkek)
Uzbekistan (Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara, and Khiva)
Happy travels, Mom!
