I’m headed to Kyrgyzstan later this week for much of the summer (after burning all my copies of the Kiljunen report, naturally) to do a research fellowship. I’m really looking forward to spending some time back in that other land that I love, and I’d be very happy to have a beer or two (or tea or whatever) with a few fellow Registanis if anyone’s going to be around. Feel free to leave a comment if you might want to meet up.

Hi Noah,

I’m off to Kyrgzstan in a few weeks time – annual holidays.

Enjoy reading Registan and would like to meet up for a beer with a fellow Central Asian (Kyrgyz mainly) fan.

I’ll be between Kochkor and Bishkek and will send you a mail if you fancy catching up.

All the best,

We’ll do our best to hook you up in the south!

Drop me a line sometime. I’ve been in Bishkek for 10 mos and would love to have a beer with a Registani.
