More Pictures and some Car Lust

Tan (тан) is the most wonderful beverage in the world. The best way to describe it, however, makes it sound rather awful: it's like watery, carbonated buttermilk. Trust me, though, it's delicious. Buy it if you ever get the chance. The above bottle of tan is dill-flavored. I was worried it would be disgusting, but it's even more delicious than regular tan. I've been downing at least a liter a day. Awesomeness.

This gigantic statue of Frunze (wikipedia entry) is located just across the street from the Bishkek train station. He sits atop an eerily anatomically correct horse. You can't tell from this shot, though.

Bishkek train station - obviously taken facing the sun, sorry.

More train station. Too bad the Kyrgyz train system is so... truncated.

I want to buy an old green or orange Lada or Moskvich.
I've been stalking them around the city.

A Lada. I think.

Yum, more Lada.
