Photographer's Note

Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan, is a fairly quiet city (except when they are having an uprising against the government and storming the Presidential Palace!) and there is not a lot for tourists to see, except for some imposing Soviet style public buildings and a few statues of Lenin and Frunze. However, it is worth dropping by Ala-Too Square, a vast expanse of concrete in the middle of the city that used to be known as Lenin Square, to see the changing of the guard. It’s a very Soviet style changing of the guard, and it’s usually watched by no more than a dozen people, so you are guaranteed of getting an unobstructed view.
