In my posting from Shymkent below, I mention the Honey gtrls who sit all day by the road side selling Honey. When it is hot some strip down to their bikinis and I am told sales go up.
This was taken in the cool of the morning when jeans were more appropriate. We are planning to buy honey on the way back. Marco Polo mentions the sweet honey and melons on his travel in these parts.
Perhaps this is where the saying, "Hi honey" came from. Well, believe it or not, Marco Polo brought spagetti from Central Asia to Italy.
