I don’t know if you can see the numbers written on this door very well, but that’s why I took this photo.  I’ve wondered for years how people in Kyrgyzstan get their electric and gas meters read when they aren’t home all day. Your meters are typically inside your house or apartment.  But I’ve noticed here that people write the numbers from their meters on their doors.  Usually it seems to be in chalk on a metal door, but some people use cardboard instead.

The sign on the door is for Ata Meken, one of the political parties that ran in the recent parliamentary election.  I don’t see many signs still up, but if I do, they’re for Ata Meken.
