View from the front of Soviet Statue of Nasreddin Hodja riding a donkey, Bukhara, Uzbekistan, pictured on July 12, 2010 in the afternoon. Nasreddin Hodja was a 13th century Sufi philosopher best remembered for his wit and funny anecdotes. He was probably Turkish. Bukhara, a city on the Silk Route is about 2500 years old. Its long history is displayed both through the impressive monuments and the overall town planning and architecture. Picture by Manuel Cohen.
