    Let's play a game - spot the Lada! They are everywhere and seem to be the automotive brand of choice for the police force. So USSR. Today it started snowing and tomorrow the "high" is -6. I intend to spend the day at the Iranian embassy; I do hope it's centrally heated.
    Staying with a Kyrgyz family. It's a guesthouse and I am the only guest (staying true to the name) and their hospitality is quite unbelievable. They invite me in for dinner, make me tea and Guiliya the grandmother has been sharing her many stories with me. We think she should write a book. I am glad to be staying for a few days here.
    Kyrgyzstan is a fun country. Please take a moment to look at the hat below. No lie, this is what the men wear about the town. It's like something out of Noddy. However, they are made of felt and fur-lined so incredibly warm in this cold weather.
    Ruth - I found a vanilla latte. Unfortunately, you weren't with it.

    Miriam - schnee! And lots of it.
    It has been below freezing for two days here in Bishkek, plummeting to a painful -13 yesterday morning.
    The post office is very old fashioned. A giant map of the world adorns the main wall and it even had a sewing machine behind the wooden counter. Parcels are wrapped in brown paper and then tied with string. The address is then written on by hand.
    Iranian visa collected this afternoon. Only took three months to arrange...Read more

    June 30, 2015 in Kyrgyzstan

    We had nearly two weeks to discover Kyrgyzstan. Because our flight to Delhi was already booked we've spent the time in canteens, undertook some sightseeing and organised a trip around the lake. I bought a 6kg watermelon for around 1€ and ended up sharing it with the whole hostel, because we had to leave the next day ;)

    Back in Bishkek we've stayed in a funny hotel, which could be rented by the hour. We've eaten more cheap local food and sent many postcards. Hoped that some will arrive... In the end we had to say good bye to Killian, who will make his way to China. Two days later we took the plane to Dehli.

    Hallo ihr Lieben!
    Unsere erste Etappe liegt nun hinter uns.
    Kirgistan hat uns sehr begeistert!!!!!!!!
    Neben wunderschönen Landschaften und gastfreundlichen Menschen konnten wir unvergessliche Eindrücke und Erfahrungen hinsichtlich des Nomadenlebens und der Lebensweise der Kirgiesen gewinnen.
    Wir sind vielen Reisenden aus unterschiedlichen Teilen der Welt begegnet; jedoch ist der Tourismus in Kirgistan noch in der Entwicklung , was u.a. mit ein Faktor war , der unsere Reise zu einer unvergesslichen Erfahrung werden ließ.
    Unser persönliches Highlight war natürlich auch, Pauls wenige Erinnerungen an seinen Geburtsort wieder aufleben zu lassen. Auf den Spuren der Vergangenheit ergaben sich viele schöne Begegnungen mit tollen Menschen.
    Es bleibt auf jeden Fall ein unvergessliches Abenteuer 😄
    Unsere Reise geht nun weiter nach Südostasien; genauer gesagt nach Vietnam!!!!!
    Wir hoffen unser Blog hat euch bisher gefallen und freuen uns wenn ihr uns weiterhin auf unserer Reise begleitet.
