I Heart Bishkek
A few months ago I didn’t know a place called Bishkek existed. When Susie emailed me and asked if I’d be interested in working on a project here I had to Google and Google Earth it to see where it was. Thought I got a sense of the geography, the mountainous landscape, and history from the search engine, I didn’t a sense of the people and it’s the people that make this place most incredible. The Kyrgyz are beautiful, kind and generous. The short time we spent here has produced life-long friendships.
