Tashkent Oddities - Two in One

Near the place I was staying I saw ... THIS. The current governer of California ('The Governator') would perhaps be a bit surprised to learn that there is an obscure nightclub in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, named after him. No, I did not check out Club Arni. Maybe next time.

Not every merry-go-round has a set of saddled roosters to ride. Or maybe they do - i'm not too familiar on the subject. At any rate, it was quite intriguing to see how all the Uzbek children shunned the roosters without exception, in favor of the horses/ponies. I suspect that any child who rode a rooster would be severely ostracized by his/her peers.
