General view of interior of traditional musical instrument shop, Tashkent, Uzbekistan, pictured on July 3, 2010. It is situated in the shopping centre opposite the Chorsu Bazaar. Tashkent, 2000 year old capital city of Uzbekistan, a Silk Road city whose name means "Stone Fortress", is now very modern due to a disastrous earthquake in 1966, after which it was greatly rebuilt. However, some of the old buildings still stand in the glittering modern city. Picture by Manuel Cohen.
