A coal mine in the south of the country. The energy crisis in Kyrgyzstan has seen the price of coal tripple from 1,000 to 3,000 Soms (16 - 50 Euros) per ton. Although the mines in the region are extremely unstable (two men died recently in a neighbouring mine) many men want to work collecting coal, including 13 year old Toki.
