    Dag 153 – Meloner ved Fergana-bazaaren

    Jeg er gaest nummer 43 siden Shahrida i 2001 som den foerste her i byen aabnede sit homestay (jeg bryder mig ikke om ordet gaestehus).

    Hvad har jeg lavet i dag? Har gaaet rundt og spist frugt, slappet af, spist frugt, skrevet nyhedsbrev til WT, spist frugt, besoegt den fine bazaar, spist frugt og har lige spist vaertindens version af den populaere ret, plov med uzbekist oel. Aargh, hun laver dejlig mad og jeg er helt julefrokostmaet nu. Hvor er det skoent!

    Paa markedet (bazaar) tog jeg billeder af en stak vandmeloner. Vandmeloner er ofte mere fotogene end mennesker. Ejeren var vist taknemmelig over at faa hans meloner fotograferet, saa han gav mig en vandmelon. Den var alt for tung at gaa rundt med og jeg var toerstig alligevel, saa jeg fandt en skyggefuld plads i knaehoejde og gik i gang med schweizerkniven. 142 blikke, knapt saa mange kommentarer og vel en halv time senere havde jeg sat det spiselige af den ca. 3 kg tunge melon til livs. Har du foer proevet at spise en hel vandmelon? Maven foeles meget…fyldig bagefter og jeg sejlede fro videre gennem de afslappende gader i Fergana. Dejlig, dejlig by.

    Havde planer om at tage ud og kigge paa nattelivet her i islamiske Fergana, men det eneste udested, der er angivet i min guidebog er lukket, og jeg magtede ikke at undersoege nattelivsbilledet naermere. Kunne faktisk heller ikke flytte mig efter den enorme maengde aftensmad hos Shahrida, saa det gik vel ud paa eet…

    On this day..

      Hello Nicolai…and hello to Martin too.

      Thanks both very much for the newsletter from Kyrgystan. It really is good to have an update. I know it must get tiring, being asked the same questions again and again, and having to write up your experiences for the diary…but, as in the villages you pass through, the people whose lives you touch and brighten up for a few moments perhaps…remember that every smile you create is like placing a little nugget of gold in the bank of goodwill.

      Keep going, Nicolai, with everyone’s best wishes you should have a tail-wind all the way!

      To you both, and to all the people of Denmark,

      Good Luck.

      Haha…No, but honestly Pete – I think it´s about time to seriously go and look for them 😉 I sense you need some good old asphalt under you again!

      Thanks for your kind reply. I´m now in the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek (without the bicycle) waiting for the greatest tailwind ever to gather around Osh and to blow me over the Irkechstam pass towards Kashgar in about 7-10 days!
