As planned, we left the urban life to discover the countryside of Kyrgyzstan. We took a mashrutka (minibus) from Bishkek to Karakol in the Issyk-Kul region. Issyk-Kul, at a height of 1800m, is the world's second-largest alpine lake (after Lake Titicaca) and moderates the climate around the lake in winter and summer.

Hello from teaneck
Dear Annamaria and Sylvan. I enjoy your journals. Assuming that you will visit Taskent, I wonder whether there are any Greeks still there? The Russians moved them there after the communists were forced to leave Greece in about 1947? Regarding us we are doing good. Little Anna ( 7 months old) visited us last weekend. She very sweet and very alert. Love Spyros

animal blanc
Pour sûe c'est un mustelidé, peut-être la fameuse zibeline dont on fait des manteaux! Mais je ne suis pas sure qu'elle vire au blanc en hiver. Sinon c'est une belette (ou une hermine si le bout de sa queue est noir). Mais on dirait une peluche!!! Elle est trop cute!
