Peace Corp
What a wonderful experience you are on. Always thought I should have gone into the Peace Corp. We are eager to read all the ups and downs. Good luck.

Do they have toilet peper there? Just asking because when my mom visited a friend in Egypt, she was told to bring a suitcase of toilet paper (which she did).

Osh Bazar

Fine photo of lots of dried things, but my big question is, Do you get greens, and if so will you get them through the winter, or will you just be having a dismal diet of sheep, tea and bread? Glad you have the big Osh for entertainment.

Osh Bazar

Off to market
They all look similar but suck us in and we must go check it out.

Hi Emily:
Thanks for the update. Glad you're having "adventures." Next time, please let me know a little about your work - definitely not boring. Stay safe!

That’s us!

A toast to your many children!
This is the funniest blog I've read in a long time--I even chuckled the second time through. Seriously, you have a future as a comedienne. Bring on more of the "outhouses, dysentery, stifling heat, and sheep intestines" and tell us what you'll be doing as a Peace Corps worker. Incidentally, that tin outhouse looks suspiciously new, as in, bought only for PC woosies--aren't you lucky!

Pot grows freely.  But being PCV’s we do not smoke any.

that's crazy! they just grow like grass without anybody planting them? do a lot of people smoke pot and is it legal there?

Great shot
Always love going to the market.

Kyrgyz Tricks
It does sound as though you are having a wonderful time. Brings back memories of Goa where the cleaners of the outhouse were the members of the local pig family - nothing more startling than having a pig's head in your toilet bowl. Enjoy the warm weather. I'm assuming that winter comes early. By the way - Any yaks in your part of the world? Yak's milk ice-cream....mmmmm!

you really got my hopes up when you mentioned karaoke The content of this comment is purely my own. The opinions and views expressed here do not reflect any position of Canada or Canadians. Just the ones who like to belt out Journey songs.

Will you be back in DC?
We have left California and relocated to Fairfax VA just outside of DC. We'd love to meet you if you are back this way. It sounds like you are going to have a fantastic Peach Corp experience. I look forward to many more blogs.

1st Lesson in Kyrgyz
A live sheep hanging in the tree would have been so much worse. Note *Intestines (cleaned, of course) make perfect sausage casings. l Loved the blog entry. Can't wait for the next installment. You could find a deck of cards and teach young Ernazar to play 'Snap' - so much easier to learn the language from a child - no modifiers, no extra words, just the basics and words like 'underwear' are hilarious to young children so very easy to amuse.

Lang Tang Valley Trek, Day 3

Dang LangTang!
Excellent adventures and choices! Orgasmic oreos at the top, beer and chocolate over a blizzard--you clearly have your priorities straight! Fab photos and very entertaining style--keep it up! We also want to hear about your adventures around Vancouver--we want more! Namaste and mellow yellow!

Lang Tang Valley Trek, Day 3

Dang Langtang indeed!
Haha, thanks Tara, glad you enjoyed, it really was quite the trip. I’m off from Nepal today (after spraining my ankle walking through Kathmandu, classic!) and will be doing a not-sanctioned-by-the-Lonely-Planet roadtrip with my mom before leaving for Kyrgyzstan at the end of April. Stay tuned! Also, your time inSA looks incredible too, I was in Peru in September and LOVED it! Cheers!
