Bishkek. Noght of April, 9th. Taxi drivers boosted prices to 500 dollars to the center of the city. Curiously enough but mobile communication still works.
Only few cars in the streets, no places to pay for mobile communication, no internet, no public transport… Three local Tv channels have been working for these days missing sometimes.
From hearsay two filling stations have been burnt, in fact only one car has suffered. The city is full of rumors.
Buildings are postered with words: “We are with people”, crossed paper strips on the window glasses.
Near the stores are guards with white and red bandages. The men are drinking.
White bandages mean “we protect our property”, red ones – “people’s bodyguards”.
