    During my Jan-term at Samford University, my Senior year, Uncle Jim (Dr. James W. Vann of Headland, AL) and I traveled to Central Asia - specifically Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. In fact, this was right after the breakup of the USSR. We had a brief layover in Moscow en route, and then a few there on the return back through. Quite Fascinating! Before reaching our destination, we encountered a glitch or two. The biggest one is that we simply didn't have the proper paperwork to pass through Russia! To rectify this matter, we had to stay in Germany for at least a week to process a visa at the Russian Embassy. We made the best of it! We actually went inside the home where Beethoven was born!

The city has witnessed the invading forces of Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan. But, like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, this city always bounced back. Samarkand is the second largest city in Uzbekistan, and is more than 2,700 years old. Founded in 700 BC by the Sogdians, it has been the capital of several different empires. Some scholars say its name means "rich city'', others "a place where people meet", and in Persian it's known as "the stone city." Guide Armida Nazaryan elaborated: "Samarkand has always played one of the most important roles in the Silk Road's many routes because of its favourable geographic location in the heart of the Silk Road. It has traditionally been a crossing point for the east and west." The first merchants from China appeared in Samarkand around the second century BC. They were particularly interested in local horses. For centuries the Samarkand markets were among the most famous markets on the Silk Road. Historian Fazlitdin Fahritdinov said: "There was a special market for silk tissue, and another for coloured tissue. In fact, we're speaking not just about simple markets, but about very large wholesale markets. "The trade infrastructure here in Samarkand was probably better-developed than anywhere else on the Silk Road, and that's why various rulers in different eras chose our city as their empires' capital." The most famous ruler to proclaim Samarkand as the capital of his mighty empire was the Great Timur, known mostly by the nickname 'Tamerlan'. He hired the best architects and engineers, intending to create the most beautiful capital in the world. Legends about this 'fairy-tale city' spread from Europe to China. Masterpieces from the Timur era, as well as the ruins of his summer residence in Shahrisabz, 80 kilometres from Samarkand, are UNESCO World Heritage-listed sites. "Timur liked to repeat one particular phrase: "one can see the might of my empire by looking at the buildings I create"," said Nazaryan. "The reason Samarkand looks the way it does today is mostly thanks to Timur and his successors (timurids)." Located in the heart of modern Samarkand, this Madrasah is part of the heritage established by Timur's grandson, Ulugh Beg. He was a scholar himself, and created one of the most advanced, educational institutions of his time in this region. The best teachers from different countries came here to give classes. Another wonder left by Ulugh Beg is his Observatory, which he constructed on one of the Samarkand hills. Only the underground part of the giant sextant has been preserved. "With the help of this instrument, Ulugh Beg calculated how the planets move every year; the length of a year; and the distance between 1,018 different stars," explained Nazaryan. It is dawn and the stars can still be seen in the sky when the Siab market opens. Established in the days of the Silk Road, the market sells the local flatbread - a real treasure. Legend has it that the Great Timur once asked for the bread during a journey far from home, but the taste was not the same. The cook was granted a pardon because one major ingredient was lacking, over which he had no control - the air of Samarkand. "This flatbread can only be cooked here," said Kadirova. "People travel here from other cities, especially to buy it. They even come from Tashkent. It would never be possible to make this kind of bread in other cities." A thread of silk still connects modern Samarkand with the time of the Silk Road. This fabric, produced in the region, is used to create handmade carpets. It takes months or sometimes years to make one silk masterpiece, which can then be preserved for centuries, according to carpet-weaver, Klara Shukurova. "Every carpet carries a history, and some of the patterns have existed since the times of the Silk Road," she said. The El Merosi theatre offers another way to really feel the city's history. Its historic fashion show presents costumes from different eras in Samarkand's past. Designers used archaeological discoveries as inspiration for their designs.

Translation of the full interview, Interview #1 ( Video Clip #1 )—Interview April 25, 2010. Interview in Korean and Russian. Interview by Jon Chang at Avangard and Severnyi Maiak (Kolkhoz “Northern Lighthouse”) outside of Tashkent Uzbekistan. The two border right upon one another, that is, Avangard and SM). Sabirzhon--My name is Sabirzhon Zuparov and I was born on Jan. 1, 1958 in Avangard/Severnyi Maiak, near Tashkent, Uzbekistan (This is the kolkhoz where Dmitrii and Mikhail An are from, the two Soviet Korean futbol players). [Beginning at 0:45 minutes or so, Sabirzhon speaks--all in the Soviet Korean dialect which consists of Russian words, Russianized words, socialist words and Hamgyong dialect as the foundation]. This is how I learned Korean, when I was young ( with brothers, sisters ), whenever my parents went out ( gosty--guesting—a Russian verb meaning “visiting others, in actuality, the majority of the time, parents worked also on the kolkhoz as farmers or foremen, long hours, daycare was through an elderly Korean couple who were the Zuparov's neighbors ) and could not bring us with them, they left us with an elderly Korean couple and through them I learned Korean at a very young age. I forget their names, they had just come from the Russ Far East (RFE). They neither spoke Russian nor Uzbek. My parents left me with them even when I was 2 and 3 years old (as they worked daily on the collective farm) and this is how I learned the Korean language. Jon--[Beg. at 20:10 minutes] But you are a special case, you speak Korean without an accent. Jon--Do you feel yourself part Uzbek and part Korean? Sab--Yeah, such was the case and I did feel this way ( da, tak bil i tak chustvoval sebia– at 20:30 of the interview) I always spoke in Korean ( meaning when growing up and during the period of the USSR) and even up til now, I speak in Korean. Jon—But they treat you like a Korean? Sabirjon—Even now, they still treat me like a Korean. Jon--One last question, did you ever think of marrying a Korean woman? (this is the best question of the interview, there is a little tension to this question especially after the end of the USSR due to ethnic and especially religious differences, note the smiles from Aleksandr (left) and Sabirzhon. I obtained photos from Sabirzhon from primary school to the end of high school, they showed that Kolkhoz Severnyi Maiak was from 80 to 90% Korean in all the various photos). Sab-- I never thought about that. I was friendly with everyone.( in Korean ). I never thought about that because my parents would not have allowed that ( per Aleksandr/Sasha’s translation at 22:19—“Besides, their customs were different." Sab continues-- our ( Uzbek) traditions are different. My parents taught me that I was Uzbek and a Muslim. We were friends (at 22:40—notice this part, he says, “my druzhili,” even with the Korean girls; while shaking his head at least four times and he says this in a lower different tone of voice, seemingly both wistful and sad to bring up memories of life on the kolkhoz when it was prosperous and the Soviet period). Sab continues--- We were all friends and spent time together, birthday parties, school festivals, holiday and First of May ( USSR holiday ). (But) I never thought about that, marrying a Korean girl. ____________ Here is the full translation of the interview from Russian and Korean to English: https://www.dropbox.com/s/k9ghi3fn7rn58mm/Sabirzhon%20Interview%201%20Only--n%20Pics.pdf?dl=0 ___________________ If you are interested in the type of ethnography that I do within the field of Asian/Korean studies or Russian/Soviet Studies, might I also recommend this in the url below. This research is based on some familiarity of the subject. From 2006 to 2010 I was in Central Asia, first working full time there and then beginning graduate school and conducting research there 5 months out of the year. The book which I have written, Burnt by the Sun: The Koreans of the Russian Far East is based upon videotaped interviews, some long term interviews with the same subjects and simply living in the kolkhozes and the former USSR. This is what the subjects said themselves in their own homes and home countries—as opposed to émigrés. The strength and depth of these types of interviews (in situ) is the variance and contradictions within the subjects through multiple interviews. This variance does not always lend to the formation of "one size fits all" theory: Author: Jon K. Chang, Burnt by the Sun: The Koreans of the Russian Far East. https://www.amazon.com/Burnt-Sun-Koreans-Russian-Perspectives/dp/0824856783/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1467368885&sr=8-1&keywords=chang+burnt+by+the+sun

During my Jan-term at Samford University, my Senior year, Uncle Jim (Dr. James W. Vann of Headland, AL) and I traveled to Central Asia - specifically Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. In fact, this was right after the breakup of the USSR. We had a brief layover in Moscow en route, and then a few there on the return back through. Quite Fascinating! Before reaching our destination, we encountered a glitch or two. The biggest one is that we simply didn't have the proper paperwork to pass through Russia! To rectify this matter, we had to stay in Germany for at least a week to process a visa at the Russian Embassy. We made the best of it! We actually went inside the home where Beethoven was born! Once our visa got settled, and after we had quality time in Central Asia, on our return through Moscow, we walked out onto Red Square and got to see the Changing of the Guard! Pretty big for a small town boy from Alabama! In time, to make this video easier to view, I will provide info and times that will cue you to specific aspects of the video.
