Darvaza, Turkmenistan

The desert village of Darvaza, north of Ashgabat, has been emptied by the former president Saparmurat Niyazov Turkmenbashi. He decided to move the nomadic population of Darwaza closer to the city. They had lived here for centuries. This is one of the few families who refused to leave.
