I was reading about the terrible things that are going on in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan, and two sad things occurred to me.
1) I had no idea where Kyrgyzstan even was, nor that Bishkek was the capital.
2) These two names sounded remarkably like names S.B.C., aka Borat Sagdiyev, would have come up with.
I can either blame Borat and society, or just myself for my lack of geography knowledge in Asia. I’m on the fence here.
