Kilroy writes” The Turmenian people are extremely proud of their country which includes mountain ranges, sand deserts and coastal areas along the Caspian Sea. Turkmenistan is a mystical and spiritual land that is perhaps best known for the beautiful marble buildings, large palaces and gold statues with their alluring air of mystery that were built under the former president, Saparmurat “Turkmenbashi” Niyazov.
