We left Tokmok at 2:45 am heading for Osh. There is a seat sale on right now and for $45 return we had an opportunity to go. We have sent a lot of support there over the last few years , ever since the revolution, but I did not want those being helped to see the help and think it was just foreign aid, I wanted them to just see the help that was coming from in their own country , as well the flights were way more expensive, and out of our range.
It was time to meet personally some of those that have lead the work in the south. It was time as well for them to see us and for us to encourage them to carry on.
On our way to the airport, we were passed by a fire truck, we both commented that it was the first time we had seen it out and about. Little did we know that it was on the way to Larissa's village and those she works with . 18 families in total , some are able to go to family or friends , but over 60 people were left with nothing after their apartment complex burned to the ground. While we were in the air heading south , our team here was busy with the first response. Just so much devastation and so few resources, where do you even start.

|they just do not know where to start|
So on to Osh ..... We arrived at 7 am , it was a great flight . here is the baggage area, the truck pulls in and everyone rummages until they find their bags.
We went to a cafe for lunch, and had a choice of first or second breakfast .. both of which were dinner items... I was looking forward to elevenzies ... thia was not the only similarity to the Lord of the Rings .. Much of the sceniery was similar.
|In the centre of the City there is a huge mountain that is full of massive caves and caverns. in side the maze of rooms and various levels of floors , we came to this room the is closed in with a huge window.|
|From the top of the mountain we had a great view of the city .. The last photos I had from here , this entire section of the city was a smoldering ruins.|
|further up the mountains we came to Solomans temple where he is said to have come to pray. ( in the distance with the flag above it )|
|She brought us home for tea|
|As we walked around the city with he and his daughter, we came across this, so Bekah and Cody took his daughter for a treat.|
