My good buddy, Seamus, is spending a year (and mebbe two) teaching at the American University in Bishkek, Kyrgystan, and is blogging about the experience at Intransigent in Bishkek
I'm pimping his blog not only because Seamus is a guy of highly developed observational powers, and a high degree of fellow humanity--he is, after all, a trained, ph.d.-level ethnographer--which he is; but also because he's a very compassionate writer, and a trip to his blog is like a trip to the trans-caucasus, without the inconvenience of actually having to go there....Photographs informed with the same sensibility as his writing accompany many posts.
Everything but the squeal...but in the most elegant sort of way...
