Diese geschichtlichen Fakten reizten uns natürlich, die Reise in Richtung Orient zu starten. Dazu mögen auch die Geschichten aus Tausendundeiner Nacht um den sagenhaften Harun Al Raschid unsere Abenteuerlust angestachelt haben.
Heute ist nun gerade der Nahe Osten Schauplatz kriegerischer Auseinandersetzungen und terroristischer Gewaltakte. Wie es dazu kam, wird kurz in geschichtlichen Exkursen angerissen.

Da ist es, ein Leben voller adjust und neuer Schwierigkeiten und Hoffnungen.

Hier leben Menschen. Sie haben ihre Vergangenheit, ihre Träume und ihre Liebe. Sie haben etwas zu sagen, zu berichten, zu erzählen... wovon wir etwas lernen dürfen. Unternehmen wir eine Fahrt mit dem Kasachstan-Express, begeben wir uns in die Machalla der Seiden- und Teppichweber in Buchara, mischen uns unter dieselbe in Taschkent und begleiten Grenzer unter Opiumhändlern durch die Wüste Karakum.

Und so hörte ich die usbekischen Aksakale sagen: „Um besser zu sehen, besteige die Berge; bewunderst du die Platane, so verneige dich vor ihren Wurzeln.“ Wollen wir es ihnen gleich tun, betreten, begegnen wir Usbekistan, verneigen wir uns vor ihren Menschen.
