The Last Day of Summer

September 1, 2017

Tamga village, Issyk Kul region, Kyrgyzstan

On the last day of summer the sun is slowly drowning in the western waters of Issyk Kul lake, the wind is blowing from Teskey Ala-Too's iced peaks and takes the last seconds of August away to the north, where they will slowly vanish in the mountain lake’s waves. It is the perfect time to listen to “The Last Day of Summer”— a song by The Cure, even though they’ve never been to Tamga.
