I was looking through my files of photographs taken during a trip to Kyrgyzstan to visit my daughter in 2009. We took some beautiful photographs of scenery and I enjoy them, they evoke memories of being in certain places. But the photographs I enjoy the most are those of the people I met along the way. I was invited into the homes of her friends, and into a family’s yurt for supper while visiting the highland summer pastures of Son Kul. We walked the streets of Bishkek and also the village streets in the countryside. How interesting it is to watch people as they are living their lives.
We may have different values and customs, and different routines to our daily lives, but we all need love and safety, we all need the means to feed ourselves and we all teach our children. We dream dreams, work hard, and hopefully have the opportunity to grow old with dignity.
