(The silk road, an ancient trade route between China and the Mediterranean.) Kyrgyzstan became independent from USSR in 1991. They have struggled to stabilize since then and are still very poor. They have had a tragic history over the years from Christians who slaughtered their ancestors to imposed Islam and Communism. There are still government restrictions and scrutiny on religious groups.
