... a salon and John was quick to duck in and have a haircut for $2. Not abad result a all! Found a guest house with adjoining cafe and souvenir ger. nothing to buy for me but we did have a nice lunch, chicken sandwiches on very nice bread, and lovely coffee. They also sold cinnamon buns and I bought two and they were put in a bag with Swedish and Finnish writing. Maybe the flour is imported from Turku and the ...

... growing. At the horizon the mountains could be seen. Arrived at the ger camp around five and we were quickly allocated our gers. Showers in a shower block. Not much water and not very much hot water. However, nice to get clean hair and wash of all the dust. John and i sat on our bed drinking wine talking before heading off to the restaurant at 7.30. The ger itself ok with a double bed and some other brightly coloured furniture. Hard bed and a rice filled pillow ...

... economic prosperity is most palpable here. In the heart of downtown, Mercedes, BMWs and Audis zip through streets that are lined with glitzy international brands. You are never more than a block or two away from a western style coffee shop. Restaurants spill over into the streets and you could almost believe you are in some European city. Though the capital was moved to Astana several years ago, Almaty is still the commercial and cultural hub with a renowned opera ...

... of drinking their pints through straws. I guess this is more feminine but it’s not a style I’m about to adopt. I did get some strange looks though as I politely removed the straw, wiped it on a napkin and placed it on the table beside my glass.

Meat is plentiful, cheap and usually served on large metal skewers on the BBQ or in a kebab. The smell of BBQ lamb or chicken permeates the air as the sun sets getting the gastric juices flowing. For ...

... oh the memories. Off to Astana the new surprise capital of Kazakstan we went. Just the 2nd 30hr train ride in in the dodgy sleeper carts with the bribing policemen and youngsters obsessed with the disgusting fermented camel milk. The city was incredibly impressive in a kind of sim city Las Vegas tacky way. You could tell it was an oil town and meant to impress. Cha Ching. Lots of gold mirrored glass, huge open spaces, axis through everywhere lining up view of the 'white house', ...

    I don't have complaints about any of the Intercontinental hotels I've stayed in. The one here, like the one in Tashkent Uzbekistan (home for 6 weeks in 2008) is the top hotel in its nation complete with full resort facilities and two Presidential Suites (when foreign Presidents/Prime Ministers/Monarchs come to Kazakhstan or Uzbekistan, they stay in Intercontinental). A little surprising that they limit free wireless to two hours in the lobby area, but you can't have everything I guess. Gorgeous, makes me feel like a Prince.
