Lake Issyk Kul'

Lake Issyk Kul' was a moody chameleon. It tasted almost like fresh water with a hint of salt. The temperature was around 68F the whole time we were there.
It was quite clear - not quite as clear as Tahoe; with a deep blue in the middle. The first morning I swam, I took few breast stroke strokes and the water ran like satiny rings of Saturn in front of me, blue and white ribbons until it dissolved in white somewhere on the other side.
The next night it got stormy and it really changed its demeanor.
