A Little About the Culture

Hi students,

You asked about the culture and the religion in Tajikistan. Most of the people in Tajikistan (90%) are Muslim. Many Muslims pray 5 times everyday. The holy day is Friday, and many Muslims go to the mosque to pray on Friday. In the picture, men are praying on a Friday. Women wear scarves on their heads.

Tajik people are very friendly. They like to invite people to visit their homes. They sit on the floor to eat. People eat lots of bread and rice. There are many markets in Tajikistan.

I will go to Washington DC and then to the country of Turkey. On August 26th, I will arrive in Tajikistan.
