|This is traditional Kyrgyz urta (meaning 'house') where locals live outside the main capital city of Bishkek. Pretty fascinating to see modern culture clash with its ancient roots...|

Thank you for this little sneak of knowledge into Kyrgyzi society. In some ways I do like it that you included the foot hills of the mountains in the background... but I feel it may have been better to get a good look at the urta and the horses grazing around it... If it was I would had been here taking the pictures I would have taken perhaps one of the urta and horses and one of the mountain... Perhaps you did?
