Other stuff is going on there too, so here’s a few Uzbekistan stories of note.

This Olympian is originally from Uzbekistan. A good portion of the Israeli Olympic squad is originally from the former Soviet Union.

The LA Times has a letter from a Jew of Uzbek heritage in response to a recent story on Uzbekistan.

The new world chess champion is from Uzbekistan (longer version here).

A new blog by a Peace Corps Volunteer who served in Uzbekistan. He came in the group after me, and I know him, even though he was way the hell out west in Khiva (if I remember correctly). He’s a talented musician as well!
