Turkmenistan News Sites

Not sure that Camel Spit is giving you all possible information about current events in Turkmenistan?  Go to the following sites to satisfy your curiosity about the home of the Golden Century!
Turkmenistan Golden Age News Site (In Russian)
Turkmenistan Official Magazine
Turkmenistan news from the horse's mouth.

Eurasianet has its very own Turkmenistan blog.  Not that I'm competitive, but you'll find nary a recipe on that site.  Fake translations of PCV conversations?  Nope.   It is, however, informative and funny.  The Russian version has different content, so load it in the Google translator if you're not up on the language.
Through Eurasianet, you can also subscribe to email updates from OSI's Turkmenistan project.  You can enter your email address on the main page at
