The games, designed to celebrate the nomadic heritage of the Central Asian nations has seen Forty countries are participating, some of which have long nomadic histories. Others are mainly there for the fun of the games. For me it was an occasion to extend my exploration on Central Asian’s states where I’m planning a new project soon.
