Visit the markets and bazaars of Central Asia: photo essay | Wandering Kiwi

Visit the markets and bazaars of Central Asia: photo essay | Wandering Kiwi

Markets or bazaars featured heavily during our Central Asia odyssey. Apart from fresh food supplies they are often a great place to pick up a bus or a share taxi for transportation. They are also full of local colour and the best place to see people going about their daily lives as they have for centuries on the Silk Road in Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.

Adversity amidst the fertile jailoos

Adversity amidst the fertile jailoos

I am no stranger to poverty, coming from a place where it is breathed in the air and served daily. Slums and cramped spaces; poor wages; dirty and chaotic city streets; local farmers, fishermen, and laborers toiling to feed their families at least once a day; diaspora of people to other countries; and poor, if not lack of access to health care and education.

These are but some of the palpable realities faced by many back home.

As such, I often need to reconcile what I see here in Kyrgyzstan countryside with their own realities. The greeneries, spacious white-washed houses, orderly villages, well-dressed residents, and sprawling jailoos are somehow tricking my mind into believing that people here live very easily.
