Uzbek Train Ticket - Bukhara, Uzbekistan

Our train ticket between Bukhara and Samarkand on the fast train. The cashier literally cuts around the numbers in order to create the receipt: 6950 sum. You'd think that a train ticket would have a set price, but each tourist we talked to paid something different (between 4,000 - 9,000 sum) for the exact same ticket. Ticket office officials, in bouts of creativity, throw in additional "insurance fees" and other random fees. An accurate representation of how things work in Uzbekistan.
