Welcome to our blog…. we moved out of our house in the spring. We spent three months living in the car, traveling around the western US. Next, we downsized a little further into our backpacks to spend the next five months traveling around Central and Southeast Asia. We spent time in Kyrgyzstan, China (Xinjiang), and Pakistan… and then Thailand, Myanmar (Burma), and Cambodia.

Kyrgyzstan – the nomads’ land

Kyrgyzstan – the nomads’ land

After some relaxing days in Osh with its nice and big market and its lively and pleasant atmosphere (at least in daytime), I headed off alone towards Kyrgyzstan’s north, out of the Ferghana valley, which is mostly populated by Uzbeks (thanks to Stalin it’s part of Kyrgyzstan though) to the Kyrgyz heartland.

No, I have no monkey, but the name is indicative of my current state of brain. After two weeks of insane researching and paper-writing, that song is about the only thing that is capable of remaining in my head and so it will just have to do for the time being.

All right, I admit it: before a few weeks ago, I had never heard of Kyrgyzstan.
