This is a memoir written about a time when the author was a graduate student experiencing Kyrgyzstan. It’s culture, people, geography and democratic uniqueness. The book also discusses a brief introduction of the country, its geostrategic position, the interest of superpowers (China, Russia and the US) and the regional players (Turkey, India and Kyrgyzstan’s neighbors).
Most of the author’s experiences were new and different and dealt with through the eyes of a curious, intelligent and, at times, humorous young man. Everything from food to practices such as bride kidnapping and celebration of holidays like Nowruz, are explored.
Providing a travel guide to Kyrgyzstan as well as encompassing all aspects from culture to society, from politics to security and from business environment to tourism, allows the reader to immerse themselves in this adventure.
