Three views of Almaty, plus one

Spring has arrived and there is a clearer view to the north into the valley of Almaty.  The glass building continues to be built to the west and the mountains are to the south.  Ken’s fourth view is down into one of the drainage tunnels to accommodate all the run off from the mountains.  Notice the man, hole and cover, many covers are purposely upturned to collect the fast spillage from melting snow or the rain that turned to sleet-snow yesterday.  The air is clear, fresh and hopeful of a promising spring which will eventually turn into a hot summer.  For now, we enjoy it!!!
