In today’s post we go for a long drive in Kyrgyzstan “over the mountains and under the stars” (1) from Bishkek into the Fergana Valley to Toktogul Lake. The hotel had hot water and the beds were clean. The locks on the doors were a fantasy, and more than one boot had gone through the cardboard walls. Looking out towards the lake, off to the left, a swimming pool with peeling paint had become a toxic sludge holding tank. In the evening and well into the night, under the boughs of a magnificent willow tree, we filled the garbage can with empty bottles until it was overflowing and laughed until our stomachs hurt.
(1) from Broken Arrow by Reuben and The Dark – the song may not be appropriate but I love the line
