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.

... a steaming bowl of ingredients swimming in a salty broth, the perfect example of 'Pavlov's Dog' was on full display. As he dished out the goods, we tried to contain our gastronomic excitement.

... was more expensive than we expected. Budget accommodation and food not that great. Transport was a ball ache - time consuming, expensive and uncomfortable. Power cuts. All minor things though when compared to the big picture. Kazakhstan was probably the most modern followed by Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan (which were about the same) and then Tajikistan. Iran was a big thrill and most definitely a highlight. With temperatures dropping it's time for us to fly south for the winter ...
Slept in to eight and took it easy in the morning washing clothes and doing not much. John especially tired after yesterday and my muscles pretty sore too. Didn't do anything really but walking on increasingly tired feet around this pleasant but pretty dull city. No wonder we only saw two tourists. There is nothing to do we went to the State museum in hope of finding souvenirs ...
... the hilt in heels and dresses (more elaborate that the kind of thing Australian's would even were to a wedding) park themselves down to chat with friends and surf the net. The cars passing by in the streets are very different to the beat up bombs and ex-Russian, Italian and German vehicles found in Bishkek. Here the trend seems to be BMWs, Lexus and various other brands that indicate extreme wealth. ...
