Issyk-Kul

My wife and her family are always very pleased when I mention Kyrgyzstan in my songs and are convinced that I could be a star there. (I don't think so).
Anyway, this is a song about the second largest Alpine Lake in the world which is situated there. I have visited it during my holidays three times and it really is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. It is surrounded by mountains and even in the summer when temperatures can reach 36 degrees C the tops of the mountains have snowy topped peaks.
Issyk-Kul means 'the lake that never freezes' and the Mountains are part of the Tian Shan range but are also known as the Celestial Mountains. The water actually changes colour depending on the time of day and the position of the sun and it is crystal clear.
When I did a search for some facts I could not believe that someone had actually recorded the water from Issyk-Kul and posted it on The Freesound Project so an enormous thanks to thoschi - I just had to use it.
Here is a link to a bit more on Issyk-Kul if you are interested.
Maybe we'll see you there one day. Hope you like it.
