First, a new KG blog. [Added later] MK lives in Bishkek and is learning Kyrgyz. She has left several interesting comments this week.
And yes, I am aware of the demonstrations going on in Bishkek. Here is an IWPR article explaining what is going on. We've not been affected at all. I don't have any reason to go to that part of Bishkek, and as long as I see people out on the streets and the children at school in my neighborhood, we'll go on with our lives. If something does happen that might affect us, I think our neighbors' actions will be a quick indicator that we should stay home.
