About kumys

Why naming a website about travelling and photography "kumys"? Indeed, what in the world is kumys?

Well, kumys is the name of Kyrgyzstan's notorious traditional drink: fermented, slightly alcoholic mare's milk. Kyrgyz people regard it as delicious. During our journey to Kyrgyzstan, nearly everyone we met invited us to come in and have a cup of kumys. Or two. This sign of hospitality has deeply impressed us - although, concerning kumys, we conclude that tastes differ enourmously around the world... And we are happy about that.
