Going to the top of Koke Tobe (Blue Hill) on a cable car ride Sunday gave us a birdseye view of what Almaty backyards look like before the trees leaf out and cover up all the “interesting” stuff.  In these nine photos, can you find the weeping willow tree, the dog and the motorcylist, the garages, the family photo shoot, the lot full of damaged cars, the laundry drying on the line, garden plots?  Everyday routines played out in Almaty backyards on a beautiful spring day, it was something to behold.
