Manzhyly (Manjyly) - Southern Shore, Kyrgyzstan
Audrey takes a break on our hill scramble around the restorative holy springs at Manjyly, Kyrgyzstan. We are surrounded by mountains, as one is, on the Southern Shore of Lake Issyk-kul. Although this time we are here for some community development work, we mark a return to one of the most memorable spots from our early days of travel and to a visit we made here in August-September 2007. Hard to believe. This time, the mountains are even more spectacular with snow.
