Today was Turkmen Melon Day, one of only 24 public holidays in the country. We celebrated by going out and and getting a muskmelon from a local shop and then only managing to eat a quarter of it before calling it quits. The rest has been saved for later. It looked like the melons in the foreground of this photo and the inside looks and tastes much like a honeydew melon. Celebrations like this were not to be found in Balkanabat, likely only really taking place in Ashgabat.
