Notes on the Geography of Uzbekistan: Samarkand: Photo 30
Last glimpse of the Registan. This time, the view is from the minaret at Bibi Khanum, which can also be climbed if you're an early bird.

The view here also hints at the sloppy building methods used by the Soviets in their reconstruction work.
