Kyrgyzstan: The Land of Nomads
I’ve always found nomadic life to be kind of exotic and intriguing. They know how to connect with nature. Connect with spirit. They are so resourceful and know how to live in simplicity. Being there I’ve experienced freedom, galloping on my horse into the unknown eternal plains of Kyrgyzstan. So much openness, so much space. They hunt, but eat only what they need. The animals there have a good life, in these open spaces.
The traditional decoration within a yurt is primarily pattern-based. These patterns are generally not according to taste, but are derived from sacred ornaments with certain symbolism. Symbols representing strength as well as stylized representations of the five elements (fire, water, earth, metal, and wood)
Family is so important in this culture, and coming back I do appreciate my family so much more. I will definitely return to this place one day.
An experience to not forget.
