A NEW EMPLOYEE JOINS BOULDER-DUSHANBE SISTER CITIES
COVID-19 in Dushanbe
May 25, 2020
No corner of the Earth has escaped Covid-19, including Tajikistan. Despite a long denial of the virus’s existence in the country, closing its border and the reality of people dying of “pneumonia,” the Covid -19 virus arrived.
In 2018, Marufjon Mirakhmatov, Tajik restoration craftsman, worked on Teahouse restoration and co-taught Central Asian Design and restoration at the University of Colorado Boulder - Environmental Design.
Every year, we celebrate Navruz, the Persian New Year, at the “Tajik Fair” on the plaza just north of the Teahouse in Boulder. This is an all day celebration when we invite guests for dinner, live music, dancing, and Persian delicacies.
