Transit Center updates tent with sheep's wool

More than half way complete skilled laborers change the sheep wool cover of the nomadic-style yurt on Sept. 6, 2013 located at the Transit Center at Manas, Kyrgyzstan. The structure represents the “spirit of Kyrgyzstan” and symbolizes the friendship between the Transit Center and its local Kyrgyz neighbors. The yurt is a nomadic-type dwelling used for centuries throughout the country. (U.S. Air Force photo/Master Sgt. Donna T. Jeffries)
