for marking the most Eastern point on my trips map so far,
a Georgian memory relived at Mimino over a fine khatchapuri and a nice glass of Georgian wine in great company,
your splendid twilight colours and sounds,
the cutest babies I saw: those cheeks and eyes!
a sense of two worlds and two time dimensions in one place at the same time,
my first bite of Kyrgyz food at Buhara restaurant,
Moldovan products on supermarket shelves. A sort of Moldovan dream on Kyrgyz land (“vis” means dream in Romanian),
a perfect ristretto by a very modest barista who shared his story of learning the trade in Moscow for seven years. My appreciation of his skill (after I saw the machine he works on) made him even more humble. People here seemed generally very humble.
a new kind the self – respect and respect for others from the professionals we interacted with,
Last but not least, a very committed team and great partners to work with!
