a continuation of my album

hello VTers, having used up all the space I had in the album on Kyrghyzstan now I am publishing the rest of the stuff here, so have a good trip..Here you will find the rest of the photo gallery of Osh Bazaar in Bishkek and photos of the Bazaar in Osh..

Chit chat on Kirghiz national drinks

These dispenser are everywhere in Osh Bazaar, they are usually attendend by one bored girl who has nothing to do but place a glass insert your coin and there you go you are served with an absurdly sugary, weirdly colored drink, a kind of hybrid between apple and orange juice, don't try it unless you are under 10 years old, insted go for the Shoro a drink made of oat sold at road intersections, or go for the delicious mare or cow fermented milk, it is delicious, fresh, delicately fizzy, the cow fermented milk is called TAN and it is sold in bottles...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:a treasure trove for hikers
  • Cons:not so much to do for those who prefer to walk in museums
  • In a nutshell:is it becoming another american "playground"?
