Eagles fight rabbits at a Kyrgyzstani hunting carnival – Back in a Bit

Eagles fight rabbits at a Kyrgyzstani hunting carnival – Back in a Bit

For something different, I tagged along to an eagle hunting carnival. This event is held every year in Bokonbayevo, Kyrgyzstan and it was a big one, since eagle Oymok was making his return from injury, having been bitten by a wolf he was sicced on at the carnival. Really.

Regional tourism travel safer, more feasible than Westerners realize



Regional tourism travel safer, more feasible than Westerners realize

The modern world offers few relatively undiscovered travel adventures.

Rural Southeast Asia has been standard travelers’ fare for decades. And the Andes of South America and their ancient ruins hold a place on many travelers’ vacation bucket list.

But the five former Soviet republics that comprise the current definition of Central Asia remain a black hole for many travelers.

Letter from Kyrgyzstan- -Dancing in Kyrgyzstan- by Robert Rosenber

Letter from Kyrgyzstan- -Dancing in Kyrgyzstan- by Robert Rosenberg

From downstairs, the inevitable knocking on my door. 9:00 pm on a school night. What are the possibilities? Anarbek, manager of the milkless milk factory, inviting me to watch porn movies at his house? (“I have 150 of them.”) Some drunk stumbling through the snow across Karl Marx Street , who has taken it upon himself to learn English – tonight, in one sitting, no effort involved? Nurgazi, my undernourished twelve year-old neighbor, come to crouch in my house and watch the American grade papers for three hours?

Something a little bit different – four friends experience a spectacular riding/sightseeing holiday

Kyrgyzstan is a small mountainous country bordering China, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. Small Scale Farming is the main occupation of its five million inhabitants although many work abroad in order to survive. The whole country is covered in snow for a large part of the year and it is only from May to mid-September that it is possible for the shepherds to graze the mountains and for tourists to get around.
