While taking a walk one weekend morning, I heard a buzz coming from behind me. I thought it was a car and turned around to see a small group of men on bikes approaching me.

Each of them had modified their bikes to play a melody using playing cards stuck in the spokes of their wheels. As they rode they loudly hummed along (none of them in tune).

When I took their photo, they stopped to chat in very heavy east european accents. They asked if I was a policeman (hardly!). When satisfied that I wasn’t surveilling them, they explained that they were Екі доңғалақты гармонизаторлар and were touring the world.

They said they were lost.
