Travel Diary: Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan

Yard of Beer

Travel is really the only thing that makes you richer. I am sharing some of my photos from Bishkek several years ago. I do apologize for the quality, they were taking with an iPhone 3 and whatever editing app was the trend during that year. Haha. This is the place that God really started to change my path and when change became my life. It would set off a series of changes over the past the six years.

The Kyrgyz capital Bishkek doesn’t feel Asian in the slightest . This former Soviet Union nation is quite surreal being situated slap bang in the heart of Asia. Kyrgyz make up only just over 50% of the population in Kyrgyzstan. In the north the other half are Russian and in the south Uzbek. Like all the other Central Asian capitals its changing rapidly.

The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics abbreviated to USSR or the Soviet Union, was a socialist state on the Eurasian continent that existed between 1922 and 1991, governed as a single-party state by the Communist Party with Moscow as its capital.

Fun Fact: Businesses in the former Soviet Union don’t like employing people over the age of thirty because they can’t adapt to the new capitalist world where they now live; because the young grasp the system with both hands.
