Nauryz Celebration Photos (Part II)

Last Sunday we were surprised  to happen upon this festive celebration, a continuation of Nauryz in Astana.  They had started celebrating this event a month ago around March 20th so perhaps this is the last of it.  I was the only weigoren (Chinese for foreigner) wandering around  the grounds taking photos.  I was invited to join their feast in the yurt but I declined, (notice the shoes in the foreground). I had to catch up with my husband as we were going to the Artoym market to buy fruits and vegetables.  Maybe next year in Astana!!!
