Uzbek Yurts ("Oul"), Samarkand Region
Typical Uzbek yurts, a photo taken in the Samarkand region of Uzbekistan by Dudin. Relatively plain from the outside, unlike the Karakalpak yurts, it is interesting to see a number of melons strewn on the ground, suggesting a relatively sedentary people engaged in agriculture rather than truly nomadic. Undoubtedly some members of the family were moving with herds, while others remained in one place, a typical situation.
