I was right! Kyrgyz Republic here I come!
So where is that you ask? Well I will tell you: Also known as Kyrgyzstan, it is a landlocked country bordered by Kazakhstan to the north, Uzbekistan to the west, Tajikistan to the southwest and People’s Republic of China to the east.
The official languages are Kyrgyz and Russian
The population is less than 6 million
The whole country is the size of Nebraska
The Kyrgyz ethnic makeup is a mix of Asian influence in the east and the Kyrgyz’s in the north identified by their red hair and pale skin (I found my people!)
80% of the population identify themselves as Muslim
I am not allowed to own or operate a motor vehicle while in service, but may if I so choose purchase a bicycle or a HORSE! (awesome)
Most of the country is covered in year-round glacial snowcapped mountains
So there you go, thats where I will be spending the next 2+ years of my life. I depart March 25, 2011 and return in June 2013.
