I would like to ask your pardon and understanding for what I am going to write right now. The thing is, my post today may not give you anything related to traveling in Silk Road of Kyrgyzstan, but just introduce you to the special individual. He is from that very anceint Uzgen city and I just could not go on without mentioning him…

Who would have thought such a small and modest city of Uzgen could give the world another great astronaut – Solijon Sharipov! He is the pride of not only his city and country, but also the whole former Soviet Union and Russia. There is no one who is not familiar with this person.

Being born and growing up in a small town did not stop this amazing guy on his way to success and dreams. He was able to make it to the moon twice during his career and now giving lessons in Moscow’s University of Astronauts.
