May 23 . Tug’ilgan kuningiz bilan !

This is how you say “Happy birthday” in Uzbek.
Today is my Alex’ birthday and Bukhara’s inhabitants wish him a tug’ilgan kuningiz bilan !

As I reported a few days ago, Uzbek are not shy, they like pictures. And the young are very curious about Westerners. They would look at me, observe how I dress, what I say… So, when I was, all the sudden, coming to them, explaining that I needed them to wish a happy birthday to my brother and that, in addition, they would be filmed… I think they were ecstatic !

Locals In uzbek, tadjik, turkish, russian…
Some tourists in spanish, cebuano, tagalog, mexican, hebrew, english…
Me, who did climb on a camel to say my line…
