Rebekah and I spent a wonderful weekend visiting some Argentinian friends in Tokmok, about 60km east of Bishkek, in Kyrgystan. Seba had been one of the group that had welcomed us to Misiones with the students on PEF a few years ago. Who would have thought that we would meet up again in Central Asia??
These cute little schafers were scampering all over the horse pasture in Tokmok. I really don't know what they are. They could have been gophers, since they lived in holes in the ground, but they don't look anything like Gopher, so I'm not sure.
