Central Asian Enclaves NPR's Ivan Watson reports on a 2-square-mile piece of territory in Central Asia that is completely within the border of a country it is not a part of. The territory is called an enclave and it is part of Kyrgyzstan. One farmer there has to conduct many errands in surrounding Uzbekistan, which is presenting hassles and out-of-pocket costs he didn't have to pay before the enclave was created.
