Osh - Bishkek Road Trip
Kyrgyz Road Trip
There is no public transport between Osh and Bishkek apart from air travel, and with that one completely misses out on the spectacular landscapes that MAKE this country. We ended up taking a taxi and sharing it with another woman and her two kids, one of them four years old and one of them ten. (That's right, there were six of us in an old jalopy traveling for 10 straight hours through the mountains). At one point, the driver stopped at a local eatery, we sat around a table and ate together. The scenery during this trip was divine, the views that appeared from behind the winding roads and the dreamlike colors of the Kyrgyz mountains dazzle the imagination unlike anything I've ever seen, quite like looking at a Da Vinci drapery study.
