Bishkek is full of interesting, historic, and occasionally perplexing monuments, most of them dating from or commemorating the Soviet era. These are a couple of photos I've taken recently, and I hope you'll note the blue skies in them!
The impressively impassive guards of the national flag.
The statue to Erkindik (Freedom) overlooking Ala-Too Square.
A Personage in National Dress.
World War II Explosives Bearers.
The Eternal Flame (eternally peppered with bottle-toting youths)
Welcoming Home the Heroes of the Front.
Another Personage. (Possibly Frunze, though I can't be sure.)
