POST-CONGRESS TOURS

* HERP-WATCHING IN CENTRAL ASIA

We are sorry to announce that this post-congress tour had to be

cancelled due to current political situation in some regions

included in its itinerary, i.e. with regard to safety of participants.

This is especially regrettable because the excursion was proposed

by some people as early as in Adelaide. The CBT Travel Agency will

contact all who already made registration.

This is a nine-day excursion to Central Asia which will provide

opportunities a to see historical sites and to watch lovely

animals. The itinerary includes flights to Tashkent (one of the

oldest cities in the territory of former U.S.S.R. with a 2000-year

(founded 1000 years B.C., former capital of the Timur Empire in the
