TRAVELING KYRGYZSTAN

The blog of 10 photojournalism students, a professor and a special adviser traveling for three weeks reporting on issues throughout Kyrgyzstan.

I wasn’t able to get out to Zita and Gita’s village yesterday so I went and looked for features. I explored a lot of the city and walked through Erkindik Boulevard to Chuy Avenue and then through the Ala-Too Square by the Parliament building to Manas Avenue. 

By the time I got there and walked up Manas Avenue to Bokanbayev I found several parks where kids were playing with their dog and sliding down a tiny hill covered in ice.

I also saw a bakery on the street where people can walk up and order freshly baked bread. Everywhere I went I saw couples and luckily I made it in time to capture a moment this couple shared in Togolok Moldo Park and then headed back to the apartments. Hope to have more on the twins in the next couple days.

Happy New Year!
