At the end of the Maksat and Adilet study trip we organized a party in the Biergarten in Rotterdam. All participants from previous trips to Kyrgyzstan had an invitation to meet Maksat and Adilet. After a journey of 3 weeks through Lithuania, Poland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland, we unfortunately had to say goodbye to these 2 boys.
Fortunately, that was possible while enjoying a snack and a drink in Rotterdam. Quite a few people had come to the event and Maksat and Adilet were visibly emotional. It is of course unique that they have met so many people in such a short time. But that so many people take the effort to visit them in Rotterdam is certainly moving.
The weather was typically Dutch, but that didn’t spoil the fun. We have drunk the necessary juices and can talk a lot with all rycigers. At one point we even had to hurry to go to Schiphol. The flight from Maksat and Adilet went that same evening. Fortunately, we arrived on time at the airport with a big spurt. It was also an intense but fantastic trip for us. We have experienced so much together and of course it was great to show Kyrgyz guides around Europe.
Thank you all very much for visiting the farewell party. Maksat and Adilet also hope to see you again soon in Kyrgyzstan (or somewhere else).
