Happily, he did invent my new favourite nonsense-sounding phrase:
Bishkek was Ashwaubenon and Oshkosh and Wausau
But what were Tashkent, Dushanbe and Ashgabat? (Straight truth: I remembered Tashkent was the capital of Uzbekistan. I'm sad to report I forgot Dushanbe and Ashgabat.)
Anyway, lucky for us, The Infinite Taint is keeping a "diary" about his trip to the 'stans. More on this later.
