Osh is the first place Alfred visits in Kyrgyzstan. He saunters down the aisles of its bazaar, but soon realizes that the real Kyrgyzstan is to be found on the endless steppes and vast mountains, where you lose all notions of boundaries.

Alfred learns about Kyrgyz identity from a girl student who tells him the tale of local legends at the foot of the "Throne of Solomon", the hill that overlooks the city. Then he sets off to find out more about the Kyrgyz - a people who define themselves by their free, nomadic lifestyle. A family from the Sayak tribe invites him to join them for a meal in their yurt.
