The strangest things

Sometimes this place is too weird. I recently put an old pair of underpants in my garbage. This evening I returned home and watched Nigora prepare the stove. I saw the underpants I threw away several days ago attached to a piece of wood soaked with oil. This was to be the firestarter.

And of course, it wasn’t too surprising, given that underpants aren’t meant to be burned, that a stream of thick smoke emerged through the cracks in the stove once it was lit. But whatever. This is Kyrgyzstan.
