This is Kyrgyzstan!

My first Kyrgyz fellow used to repeat how heavenly their lands are all the time: during his cultural presentations, introductions to Kyrgyzstan and just whenever he missed his country. Some people just accept it as a typical boasting or advertising of ones place, but I wish they could just take a closer look at that country and change their minds…

It is so interesting that many places in Kyrgyzstan are given literally heavenly names. Examples can be Tien Shan (Heavenly/celestial) mountain ranges, Suleyman (name of the prophet) mountain and so on. It is better to see once, since I have no more words to be able to describe the beauty of this country.
