What is your home city/country? How long is the trip to post from there, with what connections?

Oregon. From Bishkek to Oregon, count on 34 hours. Bishkek is an hour away from the airport, then you sit and wait in their cold, dirty airport. Then it's to Turkey, Germany, San Francisco, then Oregon. - Jan 16, 2015
We don't have a home base in the U.S. but any flight to Kyrgyzstan is long no matter what part of the country you're flying from. We have connected through Istanbul and Moscow and both are good options. - May 13, 2014
From the US East Coast it is 8 hours to London, then 9 hours to Bishkek. Alternatively, 10 hours to Istanbul and 5 hours to Bishkek. - Dec 17, 2011
