Very upsetting news coming out of Kyrgyzstan - riots, shootings by the military, the government uncertain.
Though I've only spent a brief time in Kyrgyzstan, I've always felt it was one of the loveliest countries I've visited, and the people we met were warm and friendly and just trying to get on with their lives after decades of Soviet rule.
I'm not taking sides in the dispute, just praying for a peaceful outcome, so they can go back to days like this one in the Osh market.

Great post - indeed sad to see peaceful countries erupting in violence. Hope it ends soon in Kyrgyzstan. Wonderful shot of daily life in the market.

It is very upsetting new, as you put it, I hope that things will resolve themselves peacefully. However, I see more and more that there is a Conservation Law for Unrest in the world, and whenever things subside in one place, they have to increase in another. Given that certain periods in history have seen total worldwide crises, the conservation laws operate in time as well, averaging out in space and time. You haven't posted much lately,
