Khiva: A Silkroad Oasis

The BBC has some great photos of Khiva, Uzbekistan.

The old walled city of Khiva, in western Uzbekistan, was once the capital of the kingdom of Khorezm, near the Aral Sea. It grew rich on the Silk Road trade carried across Central Asia’s deserts. Now it is a remarkable open-air museum of history and architecture.
