Buddy Bears in New Astana, Kazakhstan (Part II)

No, the Buddy Bears are NOT back in Kazakhstan. Who knows where they are on this globe. Buddy Bears were a GREAT tourist sensation in the new part of Astana a year ago. I’m showing MORE unpublished photos I took at the time but for some reason didn’t blog about them. Here’s the second time around, reliving the past. The little girl in pink wanted me to take photos of her next to each bear. I complied with about 3 or 4 photos. ┬áHer father and his friend were laughing (maybe out of embarrassment for this little pixie had no inhibitions in front of other people’s cameras). Clearly she got it, people enjoyed taking photos next to these statues representing different countries. I wonder where they are now?
