    Got back from a month long trip across Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan on Wednesday. Whilst out in country I participated in mountain treks as well as a home stay project, renovating irrigation channels and finally moving on to a bit of R&R around the cities with a bit of camel riding in the deserts.
    I'll update this thread a lot over the coming days as my photos are a bit fragmented and adding context to them all will also take a while, but for now I hope you enjoy photos from the first country!

    Most of these ones in the cities are from Bishkek.

    There are quite a few more on my Flickr, with a lot more to come. My internet connection isn't great at the moment so uploading is taking a lot longer than I'd like!

    This might be a strange comment, but the trees in the second to last photo are very regal.

    Yeah, tried to clean it up as best I could but a few dots slipped through, some might be grit collected on the glass from all the dust and dirt on trek
