The metal is present in the lives of their citizens for many reasons, among them the immediacy of your installation, much faster to build a House for example, Another reason is the economic, It is much cheaper than building a House. Another reason is the space, metal containers, that are rectangular in shape, combined among them with ease, taking advantage of the space.

Mobility plays an important role in the choice of this type of structures on the one hand society, above all merchants. Containers can be moved easily, a business in tow. Some use own van or truck as pantry and store, "a motorized container".

Most of the large bazaars are constructed to flooding hundreds of containers in several stories high, the largest country is the Dordoi bazaar, in the capital Bishkek, the containers are attached side by side, almost no spaces, so that all traders have a place. You can find almost everything, they are part of the new Silk Road and where there are the most of Asian Chinese origin goods. There are other many important markets, as the Osh bazaar, or used cars Kudai Bergen where the containers are dedicated to cars cutting.

Although the majority of citizens have one more than worthy life, in the capital Bishkek (with a Western lifestyle ), There are people who have forced to live "on a temporary basis" in some discarded railway wagons, most of the time are forced to live under these circumstances for work. Its origins are nomadic, they are accustomed to live temporarily in several residences.
Any container takes advantage, container or vehicle such as pantry store.

I was invited to tea at one of the metal wagons which were used as housing in a coalmine near the town of Sary-Tash. Quickly teapots became vessels of glass and tea in Russian vodka, the 4 women who had inside, of all ages, They emptied the bottle in less than sing a rooster. Seems that it made them very much that a foreigner would share a vodka with them, and more if it was nonsense. Out of the car one of the women poked his head out the window and continued laughing, so eager to dropped the dentures and fell to the outside, I think that it is still seeking it.
