It was unusual for the library to be this packed during school hours: sounds of doorsteps shuffling across the floor, students whispering to each other, padded bangs of books closing, and the dull beeping sound of books being borrowed. Nobody ever care that this place existed before, why is there suddenly so many people today? You thought as your gaze wandered around the library hall, searching for your friend who asked you to join her in the library to finish some homework.

Grabbing your shoulder from behind, your friend had already spotted you, she called “Y/N! Hey, we’re sitting over there.” She greeted you while pointing towards the table around the corner, with only two empty seats. “Ugh, the library is so packed today. All because of that new foreign kid.”

Dungan Mosque and Russian Orthodox Wooden Church

Karakol (Каракол), Kyrgyzstan

The houses of the two big religions of Karakol (Orthodox Christianity and Islam) are both made of wood and thus very interesting buildings. The Dungans are Muslim Hui Chinese living in Kyrgyzstan. Their Chinese provenience obviously also influenced the architecture of their mosque.

Apart from the Dungan mosque and the Orthodox church, there are a lot of old, colourful houses in Siberian style in Karakol – unfortunately in a very neglected state.
