Closing Time

The big news here in Bishkek is President Bakiyev's recent announcement that the US must leave Manas air base. Far less reported, but more important to my girlfriend and her kids, is the fact that Panfilov Park has been closed for reconstruction since October. It is scheduled to reopen in spring.

Here's hoping for new and improved rides.

On a gloomy note, the last memory I have of Park Panfilov is that of a blood-stained bench and pavement resulting from a yet another drunken fight. Not how I'd like to remember the park, but alas.
