If I had a million dollar

If I had a million dollar I would buy me some king of company. It would be very good if I could buy the Tajik Aluminum company. From that company I would earn five hundred thousand dollar per month. I would plan to give fifty percent of my income to local governments for developing the agriculture and to help them to fight against poverty. With the rest of my income I would try to buy and also to built small corporation.

My circle of friends

Meeting my best friend before coming to NGO - Program

Khurshed is my friend who I met one week before coming to Missoula for a special program NGO. I met him in the American embassy in Tajikistan. We were sitting next to each other for getting Visa to USA. Then we got our Visas. Khurshed was so happy that he invited me to the dinner. We had dinner and we talked for a couple of hours about how we will get to Missoula. Then we decided this problem and Khurshed went to his house and I went back to house. It was one week before we came to Missoula. Also, we met each other a few times for filling out some documents. He helped me o lot with my documentation. Furthermore, we found out that we studied in the same University in Tajikistan, but we didn't know about each other. We got to know each other and became very good friends. So we got the same flight schedule to Missoula for a special program.

Tajiks national food - Plov

Plov is one of the national foods of the Tajik people. This rice dish, which is yellow due to the

carrots ond oil, is eaten in weddings. Plov is essential because it keeps people in touch with the

old traditions during the most important times of life. One marvelous thing about Plov is that

you can eat it either with a spoon or with your hand, whatever you prefer. As for me, I like to

eat Plov with my hand, when I am in my home and when I eat it with my family or friends. That

is more comfortable for me. A wedding is not a wedding without Plov. The tradition of Plov

extends into other ceremonies. To taste Plov is to taste the Tajik spirit.
