Bishkek - a trumpet ride in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan is written by Line Hansen

The usual airport crowds, loud-mouthed taxi drivers and the hunt for local currency from a functioning ATM meets me at. 5 in the morning in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Then I'm off, I thought, excited about what awaits the other side. What do people look like? Are they friendly? What do they eat? How are the houses? The streets? Since street lighting is'a town in Russia', there were not many impressions I could manage to make on the trip into the city.

The driver stops in front of a dark building on a semi-paved road. Nothing I can see looks like a hostel and I most want to stay in the taxi rather than head out onto the underlit street. As I get very close to the building, I see a small sign indicating that here is a hostel. Hooray! THANK YOU taxi man and sorry I did not take your words for good goods.
