Charity Bazaar Choir and More of “Where’s Walda?”

I have more photos of people, parties and gatherings I have attended in this last week, a busy one for sure!  Next week will be even busier but for now I want to show photos of our annual charity bazaar last Sunday.  That was a highlight for many of us because we didn’t know how we would do in sales, it all came together in the very end.  I had gotten about ten or twelve boxes of books from some American friends of ours who are leaving Kazakhstan for good. They are moving on to warmer climes. (that could be about anywhere compared to Astana (;-) Their welcome donation of books was a good jumpstart for what we did at the bazaar.

What fun to hear the Christmas music done by the choir. They sang in Latin, Kazakh, French, Ukrainian and other languagess. So many nationalities were represented at this bazaar. What was funny was to see a sign in Russian at the table for Netherlands. For just 100 tenge you could get a photo shot for simply standing next to a Dutch girl in costume.  I wonder how many takers bought in to that sweet deal?  Wilma? And, where’s Walda?
