So I don't know about you, but I had no idea where Kyrgyzstan is before today. OK, well, I knew it was in the middle of all those other -stans, but that was about it.
In this map, it's the small green country in the middle of the circle.
I got this from somebody's blog entry called, helpfully, Where the hell is Kyrgzyzstan? about somebody else who was in the Peace Corps. It provided some very basic info, which is what I need right now.
Update: This brief blog entry from The Atlantic also gives a good on-the-ground overview picture of what's going on in Kyrgyzstan.
This has been a public service announcement.
