Last of the Buddy Bear photos

These will be the last of my favorite Buddy Bears and in a few cases I’m not sure what country they represent.  A couple of Buddy Bears I don’t like, such as the one for Mongolia. (sorry Mongolia) What is THAT about?  It looked like the artist did a cover-up job from what was originally intended, or someone else painted over what the artist from Mongolia had designed. (I won’t show it) In any case, there are some great artists that I want to focus your attention on. Better yet, come up to Astana and see them for yourself!!!  Tomorrow’s blog will feature some Russian poetry that a former student from Almaty clued me in on.  Fortunately, it has the English translation and the theme is “gulag life.” Quite a contrast from these bright, upbeat bears!
