This picture is at the Ala Medin bazaar in NE Bishkek near the east bus station. We're standing on the top of a big flight of stairs leading into the main bazaar.
The butcher at this bazaar wasn't able to round up any smaller chuko for us. So we're back to the beginning with finding more bones. One of my sisters and my mother want some of their own, but the 28 I have now won't go very far.
I think I'll switch back to asking stray people about them. I'm sure to find some people who would be willing to sell me some (already-cleaned!) chuko.
