Walking in Bishkek
In the evenings I will often walk back home from my place of work. It is about six miles (10 km), or almost the same distance as the route between Serenity Ranch and downtown Arivaca. The streets of Bishkek are lined with lots of trees planted back during the Soviet era. So it is a rather pleasant walk. But, one does have to be careful of the many uncovered manholes that punctuate the sidewalks here. Falling down one of them could result in serious injury or death.
