This is our last day in Astana. Tomorrow begins our trip to Uzbekistan, with a stop in Almaty. We traveled all around the city these past few days, and I’ve taken loads of pictures (all of which are being posted on Facebook and Google+). I was able to try some unique Kazakh food (though no horse yet, yet). I have also learned a few Russian basics, though not enough to really hold a conversation on my own.
Today we went into the old part of town to walk around a great summer location here in Astana. Along the river is a park where there are old carnival attractions and street vendors. Erik, Deanna, Adelaide, and I walked around, had ice cream, and great burgers. I also had the opportunity to get a picture with a steppe eagle! I’m sure that picture will be somewhere online shortly. I have already maxed out my memory cards capacity and continually have to dump a lot of my pictures onto the computer, so assuming uploading can proceed smoothly; these photos will become available shortly!
I will try to get another post in here shortly, though I am not sure where my next internet connection will be coming from.
But until next time,
