Photos of a Mix of Old and New in Astana

Since I’ve had a LOT of words on my blog lately, I’ll put up some fall photos of what is happening in Astana.  New beginnings for many people, yet I like the OLD feel to the other side of town with the narrow streets and old buildings reminding me of Kyiv, Ukraine. What I think I like about the odd mix of Astana is that it expresses what is happening with our new university.  You have the old ideas mixed with the new.  Like old log cabins and pipes above ground with modern architecture and young people being celebrated.  Fascinating place to be right now in Kazakhstan, I feel privileged to be a part of this combining old with new, new with old.
