Show trip route
Again seeing my Press Badge I was pulled to one side and asked if I needed a guided tour.
We are led into a small auditorium with a musician playing live music on the stage while we enter.
Then as they dim the lights a story is told in the film about a small boy who lives on the grasslands in a traditional yurt talking to his grandmother.
As the movie ends and the lights turn back on then four traditionally dressed women enter the stage and do a short dance formation.

After this the first musician will return and play and sing a song on his traditional guitar.
Finally we exit to an exhibition hall showing the candidate city Astana for the next expo.
There are also traditional ceramics.
I later found videos on youtube for all the shows including other cultural performances that I didnt see. Also the entrance lights up which I didnt see as they took me straight in
Entrance all lit up
Another Cultural Dance
Prime Ministers Address
Entire Movie of boy and child
An enjoyable pavilion for the cultural performances. I will go again if I return to the Expo. I love Central Asia, plan to goto Uzbekistan soon, and have visited Xinjiang China (see blog http://blog.travelpod.com/travel-blog/londone7/16/tpod.html )
