We were in Naryn yesterday where my husband did a presentation at Naryn State University. We met a few of the Peace Corps volunteers in Naryn and I was very impressed. One of the volunteers has put together an amazing English-language library at the university. They even had children's books, something I have not seen since outside our apartment since we got here. They were kind enough to let us borrow some books and the boys have been cheerfully reading Magic School Bus books all day today. I can't even imagine the work it would have taken to get that many books to Naryn.
This was the first time we'd really talked to any PCV since very few of them live in Bishkek.
