We have just landed in Tel-Aviv, however I am still in the euphoria of our two weeks in your beautiful country. I joined this trip with very high expectations. Azam you succeeded not only in helping me realise these expectations but to transcend them. The beauty of Tashkent, the magic of Samarkand and the spirituality of Bukhara were all beyond my imaginations. I discovered The special wonders of yourself, The beauty and calmness of Nodira, without whose support I am sure you would not have realised your success, Your beautiful children, your parents and siblings and your whole extended family, Your friends, our hosts, who without exception put themselves out to be hospitable to a fault. All these were the components of the special magic that you wove for us all. Last but definitely not least was the special bond forged between all of the group. This was an experience never to be forgotten. Azam, for this I am full of gratitude.
