Old wrestler, Bukhara, Uzbekistan

While visiting the old city of Bukhara, we ran into a group of old wrestlers who just finished some kind of demonstration  or event.  While I missed the event itself, I was able to take a few pictures of these impressive men.

Bukhara, located on the Silk Road, has long been a center of trade, scholarship, culture, and religion. During the golden age of the Samanids, Bukhara became the intellectual center of the Islamic world. The historic center of Bukhara is an open air museum, containing numerous mosques and madrassas. A fascinating city.
