      This was probably a good hotel in its day, but its day was long ago.
      In western standards this would struggle to rate 2 stars, the rooms are sad, the breakfast looked as if its don e on the basis that if you don t eat it today, you'll get it tomorrow until you do eat it. Juice was thin, pancakes were cold and nothing to go on them, loads of fried eggs, how old are they?
      Wifi only works in the foyer, altho there is a signal on the floors, but it doesnt connect
      Poor but very expensive

      ... meant it ended up being paked miles from the terminal - a terminal which seems grubbier and more crowded every time I see it (though not as crowded as Gatwick North - they were queueing for the restaurants there at 10.30 in the morning).
      Second flight a very new Air Astana Airbus to Almaty (previously known as Almata). We arrived there in the dark, about 6am, by the time I walked out to get onto ...

      ... first full day in country and we were all keen not to waste any more time we headed off with our Kazakh guide Svetlana to Syram and then on to a town with an old Bazaar with ancient ruins being excavated by archaeologists. In true Asian fashion the workers were in the hole which was deep enough to hide the Caterpillar in without reinforcing, hard hats, work boots or any fun police at all! We met many Kazakh people in the Bazaar and they all greeted ...

      ... country". The great steppes where the Kazakhs who are famed for their horse skills used to roam, still forms the predominant landscape of the country. Essentially a nomadic people, they were forced to give up their nomadic ways under Soviet rule and settle down.

      Horses were critical not only for transportation, but also for food. Even today horse meat is a delicacy and Dastan explained that they have a freezer at his home large enough ...

      ... walls were a little ******* the eyes. Clean, Air-Con and ensuite bathroom. The breakfast was extremely substantial as well. About three or four courses and stodgy enough to stay in the tummy until well into the afternoon.

      We met a Kiwi-Australian couple who filled us in on all the local sites to see, which included the local museum, the brand new memorial come park thingy where there were lots of wedding party photos happenning in the evenings and nearby Turkistan. Armed ...

      13th to 17th June

      On Wednesday 13th June we left Tashkent and Uzbekistan and crossed over the border into Kazakhstan.

      I wasn't really sure what to expect. Surprisingly some might think, Kazakstan is actually one of the wealthiest countries in the world. It has massive oil reserves, no national debt and the two major cities, the capital Astana and former capital Almaty are amongst the most modern 'space aged' cities ...
