Would it be craziness, to go there in January?
I dont want to go hiking or anything like that.
I want to hang out in Biskek and maybe visit someplace within a few hours bus ride from it, for a few days.

I wanted to go this September, but it is looking more like I wont be able to go, until after this year. I dont want to wait for the more civilized weather, in April, if I dont have to.
Anyway, please give opinions about going in January. Would it be romantic and cosy, or just too cold and boring.

Hi again Mel.

I'm not dealing in prophecies, but in statistics

Hm, if I was there I'd probably start dealing in blanketts, heaters and soup too

Thanks Flynn:)

-3 does not seem too bad. But that probably does not take the wind factor into account.
What I am going to do, is be sensible and go in April, even if waiting that long is making me twitchy.
I will book the ticket tonight.
I will go to Italy, in January. I'll book that tonight, too.

Not getting around as much as I want Flynn.
Last night I was going to buy my ticket to Kyr...
If I buy one now, for April or May, it will cost over 900Euros.:( So I didnt.
Now, I am back to trying to get the time in September, to go. The tickets for September are only 600 Euros. Also, for October, they are 600Euros. But I had better be here, in October, in case there is trouble with my Iranian visa, and I have to do something about it.
But, I bought a ticket to Rome, for January.

So u are from Germany Flynn. Where in Germany?
