We ended up buying loads of samples in Chicken Street. We found amazing miniature paintings and calligraphy pieces that will provide us with lots of insights and inspirations in Mogul and central asian art.
Today, Freba went to visit a few schools. I took her to MIcrorayon # 3 and took a 40 minute walk down to where we stay. I dressed as a local and it was a fairly invisible walk. Streets are better but still so much needed in terms of building roads and schools. The good new is that there are FIVE schools in Microrayon # 3. Two years ago, there was only one.
I'm heading down to a TV station to see what I can offer to upgrade the look and trend of the local personalities and get a feeling to see if they are even interested in my input. Mina is getting last minute gifts for the people that have been volunteering their time to help us. Then she will go to the guy that is in charge of our money to get cash for the bonus she will give to everyone tomorrow.
The station was impressively modern and the staff's median age is 24. I felt like a grandpa. I met a nice filmmaker that lives in Paris and he was helping the guys edit and anti suicide bombing compaign. There is a great guy from Qundoz who raps and he is LEGIT!!! Nice to see people moving on and not holding on to songs that are 30 years old.
