    Great hotel and resort

    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.

    ... 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.
    The apples in the supermarket came from Tashkent. Still tasty, though.
    We boarded near midnight for our longest train since Tehran, sincere and ...

    Northern Silk Road Route from China - Almaty

    ... corner of Kazakhstan, and is a far, far cry from the small caravan-stop it use to be along the Silk Road hundreds of years ago. But, before we go into describing modern Almaty, we need to answer some very basic questions like how did these “Stans” all come about and when did this all happen? I might just add that “stan” means “land” in Turkic. So that, for example “Uzbekistan” would mean “land of the ...

    Almaty, Kazakhstan: Our Last Stan

    ... 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. Everything up there was closed but it still gave us a good overview of the city, layer of smog and ...

    ... point at 2000 m and fewer gers and animals to start of with. Came to a valley and encountered more life. Stopped to take photos of a herder on a horse who tried to muster unwilling hybrid yaks. Good fun. Drove past a ger in the making and Jim turned the truck around and drove straight into their ger site. They welcomed us with open arms. We were served the fermented mare 's milk and curd biscuits, allowed to take photos ...

    ... that was done we were back in the truck again with our first stop being the enormous Chingiss Khaan statue measuring some x meter, being the second largest statue in the world after the Statue of Liberty. A very imposing ferocious looking Chingiss Khaan mounted on his silver horse. A large complex with mor statues, a museum, a restaurant and souvenir shop with groups of gers spread around. Obviously a very large tourist attraction in its making. Worth while ...
