    ... time immemorial, 'Alma' being the word in many Turkic tongues for apple; the Soviet botanist, Nikolai Vavilov (you all know him!), was responsible for the city being recognised as the site of the tree's origin; this claim has withstood the rigours of subsequent technological advances in research.

    Our cars were ready at 8:30pm, and we headed for an easy drive to the airport. Check-in was very slow and complicated, and the lounge was basically worthless … the seats might have been slightly nicer, but there was a charge for food and drinks. Silly.

    ... after one tiny cherry tomato bomb. Having failed to snowboard in Karakol, and being told the mountain was open just outside Almaty, we had grand plans to spend a full day boarding. Unfortunately our plans were scuppered early on. After waiting over an hour for the bus it was deemed pointless to go so we took a cable car up to Kok-Tobe, which was another hilltop view point.
