15th April Almaty, Kazakhstan

April 15, 2013

Borat was wrong abouut his beloved country: I haven’t seen one women with a moustache, the roads in the city haven’t many potholes, and I haven’t see one horse and cart yet. In fact Almaty is a modern city with the likes of Marks & Spencer, Zara and Monsoon just around the corner from our apartment.  A very well stocked supermarket is not that far away and all banks take overseas credit cards if not debit cards as well. A change from China.

Arrived here at 5am getting the apartment owner out of bed to let us in. Didn’t seem to mind that much.

Been a long saga about my darn blog. Now out of China I have access to it once more and will be able to put posts up and the comments I haven’t been able to do the last 2 weeks. If you are not aware http://www.blogspot.com was blocked byy the powers that be, my posts have to go through that web site meaning I couldn’t access it to post.

Thanks for those comments many have made, we appreciate them. Now the problem is I am haviing trouble cutting and pasting what I have written the last 2 weeks onto the post page. The photos are ok and will persevere but it may be a case of one photo telling a thousand words.

    My old map shows Almaty as Alma Ata so I think I know where you are. Tashkent
    shows clearly. Glad all is going well. Still raining off and on in Bello but no flooding. Love to you both Denis & Sandy
