After a week around Northeast Kyrgyzstan I finally got my Uzbek LOI (letter of Invitation) and spent another ten days in Bishkek trying to secure Uzbek and Tajik visas. I was in Bishkek for my birthday and it was nice to be in a place where I knew enough people to go out?I insisted on the Tex-Mex place even though I don’t often eat Tex-Mex in the U.S. The week was spent visiting my favorite bread man and running around trying to find supplies I’d run out of like blank sketching paper and long underwear for the mountains.
