Great pictures.

Enjoy the explosive growth while gas prices are sky high. They might not stay up there forever.

I give you a lot of credit for not replacing Cyrillic with Latin the way Azerbaidjan did.

How is building Astana going on?

Is there anything old in Almaty?
not so much actually. the city takesi it history in 1854 as a russian fortress Verny and all the old buildings were wooden, they were destroyed during the earthquakes 1887 and 1911, so you hardly can find buildings older then 1930's in Almaty

almaty looks nice. the place certainly is booming!

i read an article in forbes magazine about how kazakhstan is just getting into the insurance industry. preparing to take a test to get my insurance producers' license myself, i'm interested in doing business in kazakhstan somewhere in the future. from what i see, it looks like kazakhstan is a gold mine for entrepreneurs.
