    Great idea. I’ve added you to my blogroll. Random question: have you got anything in mind yet for Turkmenistan?

  4. Alex says:

    Thanks for visiting! I haven’t been able to find a native Turkmenistan writer but I am thinking of reading Sacred Horses by Jonathan Maslow which is a memoir about a man who decides to visit Turkmenistan to see the Akhhal-Teke breed of horses and the people who breed them. Have you come across any?
