On Sunday afternoon we met Mai again, my Japanese friend who works in Kyrgyzstan for two years. We got picked up by her host father Maku Abba and drove to their village Tasma near the Kazakh border. We arrived around five in the afternoon and what we experienced the following two days was just incredible and hard to put into words.
As the main reason for this trip is photography I did my best to capture life on the countryside as good as I could and the Kyrgyz people where just wonderful to us. A big рахмат (thank you) goes to Mai‘s family, their lovely kids and all the people who have been so welcoming. It was really one of the greatest times I ever had and I‘d love to come back at some point.
For now let‘s just see how it‘s going on the countryside ...
Thank you again, Kyrgyzstan, you've been wonderful! жакшы and рахмат!
Tomorrow morning we take the plane to Beijing with a stop in Ürümqi, so no facebook the next two weeks, but I will try to update the blog at the weekend with first impressions from China.
