The Silk Route: Visiting the Stans of Central Asia

Join professional travel photographer Mary Altier and her husband John Walker for a slide show covering four countries along The Silk Route: Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. The Silk Route was a network of trading routes established as early as 207 BC, when China first began producing and transporting silk for trade. Other goods, such as spices, tea, salt, sugar, ceramics, ivory, jewels and furs, were also shuttled back and forth among Asia, the Middle East and Europe. The remains of this period in history can still be seen throughout this exotic, fascinating and seldom-visited part of the world known as The Stans of Central Asia.
