Welcome to the 7th post of the "Memories from the Bank Vault" series (at the end of this post you can find links to previous episodes).

This time we travel to a country that is, at the same time, very young and very old.
We go to Kyrgyzstan or the Kyrgyz Republic, as it is officially called, or also Kirghizia a sovereign state in Central Asia.
Kyrgyzstan has borders with Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, China, and Uzbekistan. Its capital is Bishkek.
