What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

I recommend living in the city of Bishkek. Everything is in walking distance and there are nice parks.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

A house. Most expats live in either a house or apartment in the city.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

Help from husband's employer.
