During my field work time of three month in Kazakhstan, I spend one week in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. I have to refresh my visa, so I'm not here for fun (; But during the waiting time of one week, I use the time to explore Bishkek by walking, go shopping at the bazaars and relax in the big banya as well as go hiking in the mountains and meet lots of new people.
