Sarah recently took a work trip to the Fergana Valley, an area of Uzbekistan southeast of Tashkent by about three hours. The valley is the economic engine of the country both for agriculture, mostly cotton, and industry, including cranking out Chevrolets.
The drive to Fergana takes you past city sprawl, fields, through the mountains and then into the valley and its many cities. Lots to see on the way.
