Every bread is sacred


In Kyrgyzstan bread is considered sacred. You shouldn’t throw it out, and if you do you should separate it from other rubbish. You also shouldn’t put it upside down.

We’ve read this is true, but we have no idea why. Probably just because bread here is delicious. It is traditionally cooked in a tandoori over. It’s placed in the over on a tool that looks a bit like the thing you use to get pizza out of a really hot oven. As a result it ends up looking a little like a doughnut.

It’s nice to be in a country that knows what it is doing bread wise after dubious Chinese products.
