Bishkek beckons…

Kyrgyz Republic visa from Ken Roberts on Vimeo.

Funny how quickly things can change. Shot the video less than 48 hours ago. But, despite the current turmoil in the Kyrgyz Republic – proper name for the country, says so on my visa – fact is I’m looking forward to visiting more so than ever. A peoples revolt rather than a military coup – sadly not bloodless – sounds fascinating. What will I find?

I’ve six weeks or so before I reach the border, so am hopeful the situation will have calmed down by then. And, wishing to be a responsible traveller, will be in close contact with British Embassy Consular staff before making my final decision as whether or not to enter. Could go around if absolutely necessary, but where’s the fun in that? Proper adventure ahead. And now you know where the Kyrgyz Republic is.
