Astana begs to have its pictures taken of, it is glitzy and brand new. The buildings go up quickly all around the new part of town and is a showcase for the rest of the world to see. Meant to be seen and Kazakhstan wants to be heard from. What better way than promoting its good side because more often than not, it is too cold to take photos or it is covered with snow. Check out all these buildings and then you might wonder how much these builders were actually paid for their services. You have to have a sense of humor to work on these places. I call what looks like “toothpaste tubes” the Wobbly Buildings. Creative names for every building in this funky city.
