Lake Song Kul, Kyrgyzstan

Today is a big day for me.  It's the first day of school and the first time in 30 years that I have not had to be at work!!  This is going to be the first autumn that I can enjoy without the responsibility of having to be somewhere, doing something!  To all my teacher friends - have a great year!

Our bush camp-

Lunch was in the yurt-

This is their kitchen-

Our soup, with some kind of unrecognizable meat!

Here's where I slept-

This is my friend Marianne who is leaving us in a couple of days.  We will miss her :( :( :(

Because I was sleeping in the yurt toniight, I took my tent down this afternoon, at the windiest time (of course!)  My ground sheet took off in the wind and I had to make a quick decision if I would chase it or hang on to my tent.  I chose the tent and the ground sheet disappeared.  Kate ran after it but had to give up - it was going too fast and too far.  Eventually, with help, I got my tent down, then had the owner of the yurt drive me in her car to find the tarp.  Luckily it got caught on a boat in a ravine or it might have made it to China before me!

Off to Bishkek tomorrow - 3 nights in a hostel!  Hot showers!  Beds!  Yee ha!
