For those of you interested in Central Asia, like I am, you should take notice of what’s going on in Kyrgyzstan today. Protesters have taken to the streets and are calling for the president’s resignation. As you’ll see in the video below, police have opened fire in the main square where I took my Bishkek cartwheel photo. Neweurasia.net appears to have up to date reports.
Thanks to Jane, who used to blog from Bishkek when she taught English there, for the heads up.
