Businessmen in Karakalpakstan have started manufacturing a souvenir can with a label “Air from the Aral Sea,” local media report.
A company located in the village of Konlikul manufactures the product which is not common for Uzbekistan. The canned air preserves “reminiscences of Karakalpakstan,” the manufacturers state.
The production was launched under a ruling of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev on measures to boost active development of domestic tourism.
The canned air is a popular tourist souvenir, it is sold in many countries. Manufacturers put in cans not only air, but fog or smog as well. A can of “vintage smog” from Los Angeles dating back to 1958 was sold on eBay for $399.
