Kyrgyzstan

Still waiting finished CP

Kyrgyzstan has been home to nomadic
peoples over the centuries and its
influences stem from the Mongols
through to the Russian Empire. The rearing
of livestock has been integral to the way
of life and yurt dwelling is centuries old,
living in the valleys in winter and the
mountains in the summer months. Even
today it is common to see small children
riding horses in rural areas. The country
is Islamic, which is the primary religion
today, with a resurgence of mosque
building and a push to an even closer
identity with Islam. With one third of the
population under 15 years old, this means
that the next generation is destined to be
more Islamic than the older generation
which lived under Soviet Rule.
