In Uzbekistan, he was amazed by the friendliness and hospitality of our nation, as well as our marvelous cuisine! In the first days of his travel, they lavished Mark with Khanum and Beshbarmak made of horse meat at the local bazaar. Apart from the succulence of the meat, he also loved the taste and full splendor of our fruits and vegetables.
