  • Kırgızistan #2 / Day 1

    After I arrived at Manas Airport, my first work has been ride to the city centre after bike setup. There was no way to use a credit card. I had asked to few markets. Anyway, I arrived in the centre, I entered a restaurant after withdrawing money. This is a Turkish restaurant of course. This wasn't surprising for me. Because we are everywhere in the world as a Turkish people. After lunch, restaurant owner Mehmet offered me a Turkish coffee and "Maksım". I think you knew Turkish coffee before but you can newly hear to Maksım. There are so many small drinks stands everywhere. They sells maksım, ayran and kvas more. By the way, have you known kvas? It's an interesting drink and it has sourdough yeast. It's a famous drink in the old Soviet countries. Usually, I drink if I have gone to these countries. Also, kvas has kind of a beer.

    Bishkek is a crowded city. I went to Freelander Hostel after leaving traffic. I had a reservation on Booking.com before the tour.

    Fortune telling is common in Turkey when after drunk coffee. Maybe my future can be seen in the cup. Who knows?

    Views from Bishkek streets

    I needed to make up for my needs before the tour but I had a little problem. I didn't bring the gas tube. The tube is forbidden to carry on the aircraft as you know. Therefore I went out getting a tube. It was an important piece of equipment. Because it will help me in the mountains with cooking. 

    Also, I thought this is an opportunity for discovering the city. The outdoor shop was only a few kilometres from the hostel. I took the photos when I walked the streets.
