Where I stayed
This is the end, do do do, my only friend etc... I'm writing this on my last day in Kyrgyzstan, but as I don't want my mother to know when I'm coming home, I will be home by the time I post it. Sadly I'm not being taken in a blue bus as Mr Morrison would have everyone think, but in a big white airoplane. I'm now killing time having pretty much finished packing and present/souvenire buying.
Since my last entry I have been up to all sorts of fun stuff but before I baging I want to announce the amazing success of my Storm Kettle. A Storm Kettle is a wonderful little contraption in which you poor water and then make a small fire inside (anything will do for fuel, twigs leaves etc) and very soon you have boiling water. It heats it vert quickly and is very east to keep going. My Grandparents very kindly bought me one to take away with me and I've had it with me my whole trip, but before Kyrgyzstan had not had an oppertunity to use it as I had done not trekking/ outside stuff. But I've been using ti here on variouse treks and it is really cool! You can make tea in minutes, purify water for the next day, cook on it... the guide on my horse trek in Arslanbob even offered to buy it from me (I naturally refused).
Since my last time in Bishkek, I have been to mountain lakes with seaguls, a family reunion in a yurt, hiking, hitch hiking, eagle hunting (well, I saw a demonstration), sunburning, swimming, mass hat buying and prbably a lot of other things too.
Frankly I can't be bothered to write about it all though, and as I'm now back (writing for the future is very strange) you can all come and have a drink and I can tell you about it.
I'm feeling sad to be heading back into the realms of reality, banks, student loans, finding accomodation etc, but am very glad to be heading back to see all my dear friends and family. I'm also looking forward to pork pies and a pint of Harvey's!
Take care all and thank you for watching,
