Looking In . . . . . .

                                                                                                                                                              
Looking in last week was 
a first-time visitor from
TURKMENISTAN.

Turkmenistan, about 80% of which is desert, lies east of the Caspian Sea. To its NW lies Kazakhstan; to the N and NE lies Uzbekistan, while Iran lies to the S and SW, with Afghanistan to the SE. The city of Merv was an important stop-over place on the ancient Silk Road. Of the 20% non-desert area, most of the irrigated land is devoted to the growing of cotton, which is exported to many worldwide countries. The population is over 5,000,000.

Natural Gas is the country’s greatest asset, being the world’s fourth largest resource.
