    4 hours on the plane, 8 hours in a taxi, and here I am—the place that changed my life forever. The place where the mind is altered, the soul is cured, and amazing people are met, the place where you and nature become one. Finally, the place where you start hearing for the first time the barely audible, humble whispering of the heart instead of the noise of the fussy mind… There, they make culinary masterpieces from vegetables and spices, and you feel like gathering around the night campfire with drums and tambourines even early in the morning. The purest water of Issyk-Kul greets you with joy during the day and during the night after bath, and the mountains with Tibet behind them amaze you with their magnificence and power...

    Simple, wild, bold, forever. Just like back when you were a child. At home or on the way there. That's why—a running jump in the water! Yes! The very essence of the magnificent simplicity. Friends. It means laughing until you roll on the floor! The sunset and the watermelon are the same red color. Hello to you, another dear mug! The campfire will warm you, and the tambourines will disperse you into atoms. At night, if you run from the baths to the lake of Issyk-Kul, without moving, sitting quietly in the water—the milkywayey starry sky of July will be reflected by the unruffled medium: the outer space everywhere, then and now and from now on. And nothing but the stars. Imagine: there is no you. Here, I end the verse.
