Travelmag – Just don’t go to Osh!

Travelmag – Just don’t go to Osh!

“If you’re planning on going to Central Asia, keep one thought in mind: don’t go to Osh! While parts of Central Asia holds some of the world’s greatest treasures, there are other parts that hold the world’s greatest collection of detritus (i.e: the city of Osh, Southern Kyrgyzstan).”

Well, that’s his opinion.

In the Shadows of the Tian Shan: A trek through western Kyrgyzstan

In the Shadows of the Tian Shan: A trek through western Kyrgyzstan

I was unfortunate to only be biten by the travel bug in 2005 when I joined the Peace Corps as Teacher of English as Foreign Language in Turkmenistan. Prior to this adventure I had only been out of the US on a week long trip to Puerto Vallarta Mexico and a couple of day trips to Canada. Since 2005 I have been in 8 different countries in Asia and have traveled all around Turkmenistan.

The Silk Road is the popular name for a system of caravan trade routes that dates back more than 2,000 years, an important economic artery that stretched roughly 7,000 miles, from the Mediterranean to China’s Yellow River Valley. Earlier this year, the photographer Jehad Nga, on assignment for the Travel section, spent three weeks retracing part of the historic route in central Asia, driving from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, to Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
