Nomads, Nature, Adventure Oh MY!!!
As I got off the plane and entered the dark Soviet city fear gripped me as a KGB officer approached....OK I’m kidding, but this is what I thought my first experience in the post USSR republic of Central Asia was going to be. Instead my time in the small mountain town of Kochkor was filled with beautiful people, adventures around the famous lake Song Kol and a glimpse into the rich culture of Kyrgyzstan. Ok, taxi drivers are crazy, it's impossible if you’re a vegetarian since chicken is considered a vegetable and crossing the road is a near death experience every time but...is that not the joy of travel?
