Actually, this was Plan B, but Plan A was closed… I’d been to the Sunday market near Ashgabat twice already, so I wanted to do something different, there’s plenty to see in Turkmenistan’s capital. So, I walked to the Botanical garden which turned out to be a lush, green oasis in a bustling city on the edge of the desert…
At every crossing of major paths there was a waterlily pond, much to the delight of the (scarce) visitors. This is my best shot of the pink things the little frog clearly was avoiding.
