The following photos were taken as part of my Fulbright Senior Specialist Grant during May-June 2003 (click on the photos for a larger version).

Here are a couple of photos of me in front of a tank that was used during the 1992 civil war. The Russian inscription on the tank says "for motherland."

Near the tank monument, is located the eternal flame in memory of those that died in the 1992 civil war. Located behind this monument, is a statute dedicated to those that died in the war in Afghanistan (remember, this was part of the Soviet Union).
