A couple of weeks ago I’ve written about Kashgar and also included two pictures of the live stock market there; link: http://rheumatologe.blogspot.de/2014/09/kashgar-xinjiang.html. In Kyrgyzstan I was able to venture into a small twown with an animal market at Issyk Kul (Yssykköl), a large lake at the Tian Shan (length 182 km, width 60 km).
The market is located at the old kolkhoz buildings.
View across the market into the mountains
Also other goods were sold at the market
Car, donkey carts, horses - name it and it had been there
Sheeps and goats dominated
All kinds of ropes
Relax - the buyer for the cattle will show up, too
