"Monday, Monday!" Dushanbe by jkseddon

Dushanbe Travel Guide: 104 reviews and 531 photos

Dushanbe, 'monday' in Farsi, is a city that apparently at one time was run by bandits after dark. Thankfully they went with the end of the civil war and the restoration of government authority. Tourists are few and far between in Dushanbe and those there are probably only there as long as it takes to get a permit for the GBAO so they can go trekking.
If you're alone as I was, bring a good book or three. There's nothing to do at night in Dushanbe.
