Photographer's Note

Please open both photos in new tabs for the better versions.
In central Bukhara we came across this unusual sight - a young woman walking along holding up a veil.
I needed to check my journal for the explanation:
After being married the bride is provided 6 different outfits by the groom's family to be worn, one a day for each of 6 days. The mother-in-law escorts the lucky bride around town showing her off. You can see the mother-in-law in the WS.
