The first Kyrgyz hut leaves you open-mouthed. Two days later you find it normal, but still you cant lift your eyes when they go by. All Central Asia is full of huts, Kyrgyzstan has surprised me specially where I’ve seen huts I’ve never seen before and I could not imagine they existed.
Huts change depending on the ethnic group, the religion or the area. Traditional huts are part of the normal attire, even in young people you see more traditional huts than Adidas huts. And I don’t joke about this, nearly half of the people wears something from “made in china” Adidas. I think the video will help you get an idea of what is a normal walk in here.
The music sounds a bit like a Christmas song, but if in the falconry video I was totally lost looking for the music, in this one I was really unable to find something suitable. So a song about huts is what I’ve liked the most.
The next post is about China, I’ve been a few days around here already and I have thousands things to tell you about… surprises about religion, the Taklamakan dessert and more beautiful mountains.
I´ll tell you about it soon.
