International Women's Day
Tomorrow is International Women's Day here in Bishkek and it is a huge holiday. It is even bigger than Valentine's Day. If prices are an accurate indicator it is 1.5 times as important. A single red rose imported from Holland cost 200 som on February 14th. Last night the price was 300 som. The florists love this holiday. It is their single biggest time of the year for sales.
