A Kyrgyz customs officer talks on a radio in front of workers as they reload cargo from a Chinese truck to Kyrgyz one at the Irkeshtam border crossing in southern Kyrgyzstan October 16, 2006. Meandering through the Pamir Mountains, at an altitude of up to 3615 metres above sea level, the main trading route between Kyrgyzstan and China is a bumpy dust road – the main source of employment in this isolated Central Asian region.
