During training I lived in a village next to Türmenbaşy metjit (mosque), a huge building reputed to have the tallest minarets in Central Asia. People didn't go there often, but it was certainly always in view. It was always stunning to have this in sight every morning, a grand (or intimidating depending on the day) view as I headed to language training every morning. The only people in the streets at that time are students headed to school.
