Nauryz Celebration continued in Astana


As promised, I have some photos from this past weekend.  One of the first weekends where we could walk around and REALLY enjoy the spring-like weather.  Of course, Almaty has been enjoying warmer temps for about a month or more. I felt like many Astana people, we all just wanted to get OUT in lighter layers of clothes so we could breathe the fresh air that Almaty does not enjoy.  What a surprise to see so many yurts set up with the animals nearby and Kazakh people all dressed in festive robes and dresses.
