view of Issyk Kul
At 180km long, it is hard to get good photo. Such a deep blue colour.
Balychky is town at other end of Issyk kul, which s another bit salty lake, just 180km long, the lake has 7 or 8 feed rivers but no surface river runs out!
I found a guest house by asking taxi driver, small holding right down by lake, cow & calf, turkeys and guineafoul all cluking about.
Whole family live in approx 3 building, grand parrents , ma & pa, I think 6 daughters from 4 to 21.
Their main business is small shop, from what can 1 in 10 houses is a small grocery.
Day out to Bishkek, to visit Kordai border and get some bike insurance - no so simple, did loose original bike V5 & customs declaration - stupid, but ended up leaving Kyrgyz and re-entry after fiddle on with help Omar a fixer, spend £25 (is alot if hotel here is £6/night) to achieve little.
Bishkek was busy city, post cards bit hard to find.
