The portal to Afghanistan...nearly all US troops pass through Manas on their way to Afghanistan.  I was lucky enough to enter the country as a civilian and stand in the immigrations line.  Fun Fun. :)  It really wasn't so bad I guess.  They have it worked out so those of us with civilian orders simply show our passport and orders, then we get through fairly easy.  I don't know what it would be like coming to Bishkek as a tourist.  Perhaps it would be the same, but I imagine it might not be so easy.  I hear they aren't too fond of Americans there...
