Fascinating insights into life in Kazakhstan...a place I knew nothing about before I found this blog. I loved the piece about getting around Astana in particular; the pitfalls and benefits of hitching lifts and the trials of trying to buy a car. And the descriptions of life in winter with feet of snow and it being so cold the dog can't go out - it makes interesting reading from here in mild damp Dublin. Keep it up Nerissa.

This blog brings Astana to life with great humour as well as being v. informative. I feel like I've been there - and hope to some day!

Moving out of your comfort zone and even your country can be bewildering, interesting and sometimes amusing. Every country is unique in the way the systems work and this blog provides great insight into expat life in Astanna.
