More Photos from Astana: New and Old Looks

My students laughed when they saw the VIP lounge sign next to the old soldiers at the Astana train station.  Seems a bit oxymoronic.  Also, having a photo of my husband at a Shell gas station when 20 years ago it was illegal to take photos of any gas station or airport in the former USSR.  Times are a-changing. 

I just HAD to take a photo of this old typewriter with Cyrillic letters.
