Architect nightmare

♫♫ Kyrgyz folk song: "Urpagybyz Manastyn" - Hero of Kyrgyz people ♫♫

...

Mostly wedged into a striking if slightly foreboding canyon, Naryn is an architecturally unlovely strip town with no real 'sights' beyond a typical local museum and a 1993 mosque with fanciful mosaics, 2.5km west of Naryn's centre. However, it is nonetheless an excellent place to hook up with other summer travellers to ride-share (and thus save money) on crossing the Torugart Pass to China, visiting Tash Rabat Caravanserai or heading across the very rough road to Kazarman(for Osh).

The name Naryn is derived from the Mongolian for ‘sunny’ – a rare moment of Mongol irony.

I'm guessing the "building inspectors" are "open for negotiation".....
Love the colors & woman's expression in #1

Hahahaha. I think inspection is a word that does not appear in Kyrgyz dictionary. :-))
