World is a cramped place September 15, 2008

Two interesting things happened to me last week.

First, I received a mail from a (supposedly) Dutchman, who is currently staying in Tashkent, my hometown. He said he saw the Polish Catholic church in my YouTube video about Tashkent and asked how he can reach the church and see it by himself. I gave him directions, and after 2 days I received a letter of thanks :-)

Second story is more complicated. As you might know, I have a photo gallery with photos of both Uzbekistan and Denmark. So, around two years ago I received an email from a Danish woman who used to live in Uzbekistan. Now, after two years, she found me in LinkedIn and asked how I and Uzbekistan were. It turned out that she studied Russian and worked as an English teacher in Tashkent. I asked why she chose Uzbekistan to study Russian, but not the motherland of the language. She said she liked Uzbekistan more than Russia. It is nice to hear this kind of stuff.


  1. If that Danish woman’s name is Sonja, I know her. I have taken English classes in Tashkent with Sonja from Denmark.

  2. Nope, her name is not Sonja, unfortunately.
