RFE/RL on the media's reporting on religious freedom in Central Asia (or the lack of it)
That's just a link. I'm not writing anything about it.
I have noticed that people are a lot more impressed with our efforts to learn Uzbek and Kyrgyz than they ever have been with Russian. I am getting far more encouragement and that is very helpful. Well, maybe it's an exaggeration to say people are impressed with my husband learning Uzbek. Uzbeks aren't exactly popular in Kyrgyzstan. As they always say, Uzbeks are sly. Tajiks aren't too popular either, although Kazakhs are, at least relatively.
I wonder what other nationalities in the region say about the Kyrgyz?
