                                         ♫♫ 15 THINGS TO DO IN BISHKEK ♫♫

Bishkek, formerly Pishpek and Frunze, is the capital and largest city of Kyrgyzstan (Kyrgyz Republic). Post-Soviet research suggests the name derives from a Kyrgyz word for a churn used to make fermented mare's milk (kumis), the Kyrgyz national drink. Bishkek is situated at an altitude of about 800 meters (2,600 ft), just off the northern fringe of the Kyrgyz Ala-Too range, an extension of the Tian Shan mountain range. These mountains rise to a height of 4,855 meters (15,928 ft) and provide a spectacular backdrop to the city.

#1 you can say so - back to civilization and all its problems. #3 - Exactly. #4 They were preparing tables for lunch and I ask if I could take a picture because they were so beautiful (I said beautiful in Russian - красивый - and I think they understood smiley) #5 - Too many vodka smileysmiley. Thanks dear Jay.

Always a pleasure to see what "catches your eye", even when it's "bathing" in vodka....(((grin)))

Hey Antonio, nice series again, #4 & #5 are my favs. The colors in 4 are great, I like that you just got that bit more of the wall in the frame and not only put the focus on the girls. And Jabba, yes I can see his face in it. Great Job
