Clean Room with a lovely balcony. Staff were able to drive us to the airport for an ok fee. Located near food stores and a lovely park. No running hot water though.

... Oman and Dubai, I was spoiled with overwhelming hospitality from the amazing CS community in Iran, but active hosts are rare in Central Asia, so, apart from 3 nights with a lovely family in Dushanbe, and dinner with a host in Osh, I haven't 'surfed' since crossing to Turkmenistan, a couple of months ago.

The evening ended with a traditional Kazakh dinner. The tour guide recommended this place as they carefully prepare several complex dishes in the traditional way. We even got to taste a national favourite - hand made noodles mixed with perfectly cooked onions (still crispy but without a raw onion taste) and topped with horse sausage. It was quite yummy.
... had piled on over the past weeks. Buzzing around being busy made the day just fly by. We decided to stay one more night at the camp. Nice and relaxing.

But first we wanted to take care of a few more things in Almaty, such as picking up our camping chairs that we had forgotten at the ...
