Have you ever heard of TURKMENISTAN before? If not, then get ready to learn about how strange it is here in my 170th country.
I've spent the last 24 hours roaming around the capital city of Ashgabat, and IT REMINDS ME EXACTLY OF PYONGYANG, NORTH KOREA in just about every way possible. Huge fancy buildings with very few people inside, perfectly manicured gardens and boulevards with nobody on them and a this eerie feeling that someone is watching over your shoulder 24/7.
People had told me that Ashgabat was strange, but I had no idea to what extent it was until arriving here.... Find out everything you need to know about Turkmenistan's capital in this video!
How many of you guys actually knew about this place? Would love to see a show of hands :)
