Snapshot

Let's not beat around the bush, Turkmenistan is weird; not quite North Korea-weird however pretty damn close. Isolated from the rest of the world since independence from the USSR In 1990, Turkmenistan's first two decadesr were dominated by eccentric late President 'Turkmenbashi' (Father of the Turkmen), who set about recreating the country in his image, using as funds one of the world's grand reserves of natural gas. The result is a fascinating I fiefdom of oddball sights and quirky historical remains. Gasp at the huge Turkmenbashi Mosque, stare in awe at the Ministry of Fairness, wonder at the revolving statue of the late president and be one of the few people to have glimpsed the strangest corner of Central Asia.
