I remember I was greatly surprised when I first observed how the life of the city changes with the change of the seasons.
I came in Bishkek at the end of winter; there were few people there. Then it became warmer, and the city streets immediately became busy. Children, old people, young people were walking, playing, hurrying… Where have they all been in the winter?Uriel Castellanos
I like that Bishkek is located among the mountains. As for me, you can go for a picnic every weekend. Nature is only an hour away.
— And what in Bishkek reminds you of your hometown?
— The number of trees. My homeland has two seasons — six months of summer and six months of rain. Our trees are always green, so I feel at home in the spring and summer in Bishkek. And If I hear the birds singing, I fly to
— What do you miss here, Mexican cuisine, probably?
— There are a couple of places in Bishkek with our cuisine, but this is not the same. Its golden rules are cheap and tasty. I wish I would have a good Mexican cuisine and my girlfriend here, Bishkek would be a paradise for me!
— Which places do you like to visit in Bishkek?
— I like to go to one national cafe, walk along Erkindik boulevard. Both places are visited by people with different social status. In one of them they eat plov or lagman, in the other — walk, talk, play with children. The main thing — they do not pay attention to foreigners. Here I begin to feel myself a local.

— Probably, all foreigners say that you are hospitable. And it is indeed. For example, I noticed that most representatives of the local population are ready to share bread, drink tea together, and tell openly about themselves.
I was disappointed that there are still people who attempt to deceive, to use you in the most miserable way.Uriel Castellanos
— What would you change in Bishkek?
— I would improve street lighting and repair roads. I would also open a good Mexican restaurant. Local people deserve to taste a good taco!
