series: Rudy Maxa's World
air date: 8/29/13 4:00 AM
In what is perhaps the series' most colorful and exotic episode, Rudy Maxa takes viewers along the Silk Road in this country that's an emerging economy in Central Asia. Marvel at eye-popping mosques built centuries ago and impeccably restored during Soviet occupation of the country. Rudy joins friends for the preparation of the national dish, plov, and visit the simple yurt of a young family living on an isolated desert plain. Explore trade-route cities whose names summon images of ancient times: Samarkand, Khiva, and Bukhara. This is a front-row seat on a country trying to balance Islam with modern society, an autocratic government with democratic demands.
