Denouement of daily life. Olga and I are departing for Kyrgyzstan May 15, 2007. The trip will take us about 38 hours to reach Bishkek, the capital. After gather our bags, it will be a 12 hour venture to the Batken Oblast where her family lives. Uch-Korgon is the name of their village, very large and yet still quiet... We will be helping her family build a summer house, tend to their gardens, and relax for the summer season. We plan on doing alot of nothing, seeing that it's been 2 years since we've seen them last. We are so excited! As it turns out, Kyrgyzstan has a rich archeaological deposit, much of which has not been disturbed. The region we are in is flush with petroglyphs and stone work. I, myself, am going to be busy in search for anything and everything archaic. Fortunately, the region is peaceful and any lone journeys will be met, at most, with only a cobra or drunk local. I will keep a regular weekly update while over there, as long as gasoline doesn't skyrocket.
