Dec 28th, 2017 : Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is furthest country from the ocean, and least populous nation with 29.5 residents per square Kilometer.
Itís the size of Nebraska, with 90% of itís land above 4000 ft, has two National Parks and three Unesco World Heritage sites.
Sure is purty.



Famous for hunting with golden eagles, they also train Northern Goshawks, Peregrine Falcons, and Saker Falcons.



When they were part of the Soviet Union they were a big producer of uranium and manufacturing, so richer than they are now.
Gold accounts for 43% of Kyrgyzstanís exports followed by ďdried legumesĒ at 3.5%.



Friendly to everyone.

If youíre North Korean, you can stay for as long as you like without a visa. The same goes for citizens of Cuba, Vietnam,
Russia, Armenia and 8 other formerly communist countries. Kyrgyzstan is a visa-free regime to 61 nations, including the
United States and the European Union, whose citizens can stay for up to 60 days.


Bed and board for $10 a day.

Itís in their culture and history to welcome guests, positioned right on the Silk Road. They have a special name for passing
travellers who ask for shelterĖ kydaly konok, or Ďgodís guestsí. Home stays with Kyrgyz families is part of the experience
of visiting Kyrgyzstan, or accommodation in yurt camps that offer a glimpse into the nomadic life of yesteryear.

Note for all North Koreans who are reading this cellar article: Kryrzjyskstan might not have the Bomb, but they do have the Food.

For North Koreans it's not the destination, it's the journey.
