This week Frizz is summoning everyone to submit their interpretation of the “letter k”. I started looking through my photo files and when I reached the file named Kyrgyzstan – I realized that it begins with a “k” and, well, I had to pause. I won’t overwhelm you with all 450 photos I have in that file but here are a few fun ones.
This is Azermat – which begins with an “A” not a “K”. But he is Kyrgyz. Many people who live in Kyrgyzstan are Russian, because Kyrgyzstan was a part of the USSR. But Azermat is a descendent of an honest-to-goodness kan, a tribal leader when the Kyrgyz were a nomatic tribal culture. Azermat was our guide as we were traveling around Issyk-Kul and up to the mountain pasture at Son Kul. If you haven’t noticed, that is a “double k” (Kyrgyz Kan) which should mean I get double points from Frizz. You can read about my adventures in Kyrgyzstan and see pics by clicking here (but not now – after you enjoy the rest of this post).
I’m on a roll with another “double k” – Kyrgyz Kids. Here are picks of some of the cute kids I met along the way. You can click on any of them to see as a slide show.
Okay, now you can go back and click on the link to see my other posts on Kyrgyzstan. Or you can click here to join in Frizz’s k-fun.
