A symbolic yurt in the Faeva Shopping Mall in downtown Bishkek.
Off to Bishkek via Newark, NJ, Franfurt, Germany, and Almaty, Kazhakstan
I am off on a two month-long adventure today that will take me to Central Asia and to parts of Kyrgyzstan That I did not see on my previous travels to this interesting small alpine nation. The flights take a number of hours. I leave Houston, TX, at 1 pm flying on Continental Airlines to Newark. From there I have about an hour and a half and a change of aircraft to Luthansa for an overnight flight to Frankfurt. Four hours later, I board a final aircraft for Almaty, KZ, and fly about 7 hours. Scheduled to arrive in Almaty at about 1 am on June 24th. That will be followed by a 2 hour car ride through the mountains and steppes south to Bishkek.
Plans have been made for me to go to Lake Issy-Kul, Naryn, Osh, Kazulkya, Talas, and other locations. I am also hoping I will be able to visit Sary-Chelek. I will be based in the Kyrgyz capital of Bishkek until August 25, 2009.
