Giant-Flags… f*&% I love them. I reckon I came very close to sun-stroke today, just standing in the sun for extended periods, waiting for the Giant-Flag to catch some wind and unfurl for the best photo.
But this is the first time I did some follow-up research on one, after discovering this Giant-Flag is flying from the 2nd-tallest flagpole in the world (was the tallest until 5 years ago)… and discovered – the Dushanbe Giant-Tajikistan-Flag weighs 700kg. That’s a big flag.
Oh – Dushanbe also had a rather good museum, a surprising number of functioning fountains (which I realised I also quite like, as they’re kinda like an upside down waterfall), and probably some other stuff I’ve forgotten about.
Because – Giant-Flag.
