Didier Vervaeren’s trip to Issy-KUL/Kirgyztan- Capital Bishkek and beyond…


Dear Shaded Viewers,

It looks like I'm the only tourist in the country. I'm now near the border of China, Issy-Kul Lake (the second biggest lake). It's wonderful, the nature is amazing, mountains, lakes with steps and endless trees.

I sleep in an ex-Soviet VIP Hotel (big and very 60's) they have a spa and treatments with a Soviet feel to them, I feel like I'm in a film "La Clinique de la Foret-Noire", it was a series from the 80's on TV. The tourists are all local and we had dancers for dinner…


Didier good night
