A Reader in Kyrgyzstan but none from Kazakhstan

Thomo’s Hole has a reader in Kyrgyzstan finally but still none from Kazakhstan. I remember my trip to Kazakhstan fondly (see Kazakhstan – First Impressions – First Contact). I would like to visit Kyrgyzstan (and Uzbekistan and Tajikistan for that matter as well) but I cannot see a way to get there in the immediate future. I’m not so much in a rush to get to Turkmenistan. Why Kyrgyzstan I hear you ask? One reason is to see one end of the Ferghana Valley and Jalalabad which lies on the edge of the valley. Another is, well, just to see it and to have a look around Bishkek as well.

Of course, I also want to see Tashkent in Uzbekistan and yes, I could see the Ferghana Valley in Uzbekistan as well as I could in Kyrgyzstan – but hey, you know how much I like to drift around. It would be kind of nice to visit all 5 of the old Soviet ‘stan republics. Maybe in a few years time.

    Oh, and I almost forgot – the other reason for wanting to visit Uzbekistan is to see Samarkand (Samarqand). It has been one of the five cities I have always dreamed of visiting – Samarkand, Timbuktoo, Rejkavik, Istanbul and Ulaanbaatar. So far I have visited Istanbul and Ulaanbaatar – but I will do the others, I am sure.

      Welcome chester.

      As to what you are going to read, well, there is an odd mix of stuff in here. Some of the travel tales are amusing – as was the loss of my tooth drinking vodka in Almaty with a friend there.

      Enjoy and thanks for dropping in. 🙂
