Sergey Shetinin: Issyk-Kul Lake Kyrgyzstan Karakol Novosibirsk - last articles and news in RSS/XML format |
August 2006. Kyrgyzstan. Issuk-Kul Lake.

August 2006. Kyrgyzstan. Issuk-Kul Lake.

After the European trip we have returned in Kyrgyzstan. We had a quiet flight back from Brussels to Moscow, where we spent about 10 hours wating our flight to Bishkek, then we had the last flight of our travel from Moscow to Bishkek's airport 'Manas'.

Having an overnight in Bishkek we rushed on the next morning to Issyk-Kul Lake to our daughter, our parents and grandparents. The rest of the free time we had we decided to spend for nothing to do - just for full relaxation near the beautiful lake Issuk-Kul (so-called 'pearl of Tien-Shan'). We had to muster our strength for te next coming working year in the big city. The Issyk-Kul area has a perfect climate for the rest so we were enjoying having the beautiful weather and pollution-free fruits and vegetables of this region.

Lyuba - our daughter - met us with the great elation. That was first time for her to be without parents for such a long period of time. But she was ok - she helped grandmoter at her work and was quiet (as she is usual). While we were aroad we phoned to Lyuba and she asked to bring some gifts for her (one gift for one day she is without us). So we brought a full bags of some presents - clothes, toys and other pleasant trifles.

These two weeks we spent on the Issyk-Kul lakeshore in the house of my moter-in-law. That was great to live not far from the lake - everyday were going to swim and play in the water, going to gather some herbs and flowers to take them in Novosibirsk, talking with our relatives and friends living in Karakol and Pristan-Prjevalsk. So - we had a great relaxation time there - thanks to weather.

The best pictures of Issyk-Kul Lake, Karakol town and us are posted here. Same as in other articles I have added the description to every photo and you can read then either clicking on thumbnail or in tool tips...

SMU - it's an abbreviated notation of Constructing-and-Mounting Department in russian. That's a small village where workers of this department used to live in the times of USSR. Now it's ust a small village near Karakol.
Walking there we could take a car for hire to take a trip around.
SMU. Car for hire.
SMU village is situated on the hill just above the lake Issyk-Kul. There are spectacular views from there.

Water melons, melons, apricots and all other fruits and vegetables were eaten by us everyday with the great pleasure.
We love water melons.
Zhanna's mother cooks very tasteful 'plov' (pilaw, pilau, pilov). We had it two or three times during the time we had there.

The best transport from ecological point of view is the horse. The local people understand it and every good family in the villages has their own horse.
Karakol. SMU. Local transport.
In the times of USSR that was a house that was prestigious to have a flat there. Many families were in the query to have a flat there. But now - just look at that - half of house is unmounted or disassembled by bricks. What for? To build new small houses around from this stolen bricks.
