The square was built in 1984 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Kyrgyz SSR, at which time a massive statue of Lenin was placed in the square's center. The statue of Lenin was moved in 2003 to a smaller square in the city, and a new statue called Erkindik (Freedom) was installed in its place.

Karon beach, Phuket

Karon features the third longest beach on Phuket Island. Located on the west coast, between Patong to the north and Kata (with which it shares a common municipality) to the south, Karon Beach is the second favourite holiday destination in Phuket. The beach itself has excellent snorkelling (and even diving) spots at its southern end and is wide enough for beachgoers to never feel crowded.

The Confusions The Pilot - Cover

Från Sveriges radio Västernorrland:
Under sina resor har Anders lärt känna några filippinska musiker i Thailand. Eftersom han är kompis med Sundsvallsbandet The Confusions, bad han musikerna Mia Miraflores och Megan Balao att tolka en av gruppens låtar. De lärde sig The Pilot under en paus och spelade sedan upp den för den thailändska publiken. Det hela filmades och lades upp på Youtube. Självklart reagerade The Confusions själva på den sydostasiatiska tolkningen.

– Det har varit tummen upp, faktiskt. Jag vet inte om det är av artighetsskäl, men jag tror faktiskt att de är ärligt glada att vi gjorde det här, skrattar Anders.

Phnom Penh, December 2014

Phnom Penh: the name can’t help but conjure up an image of the exotic. The glimmering spires of the Royal Palace, the fluttering saffron of the monks’ robes and the luscious location on the banks of the mighty Mekong – this is the Asia many dreamed of when first imagining their adventures overseas.
