    13:00. Lunch at the guest house. Main dish - Uzbek kebabs.

    In Uzbekistan, kebab occupies a special place. If in Russia kebab is a trip to the countryside, a weekend, then in Uzbekistan it is eaten almost every day, for lunch, with a stick or two, to shurpa or pilaf. Every self-respecting Uzbek knows well where excellent kebab is served. These are sacred places - they are shared. What can I say - in the East, great importance was attached to the meal. Real Uzbek kebab is prepared as soon as the guest has sat down at the table. While he is drinking tea and resting, the masterpieces are stringing pieces of meat and fat tail fat onto skewers.
