Buddy Bears are Back (on my Blog)

You thought you had seen the last of the Buddy bears but that is NOT to be, they won’t be going anywhere outside of Astana until the end of July.  If you want to know more about our ceramic bear visitors, go to this website:   http://www.ubb-astana.com to find out more.  I think that the Swedish bear is funny, there must be a good reason the artist put him in a night shirt.  There’s also a song on his left foot that I need to ask my sister or mom if they know what it is.  Incredible the diversity that is shown in all these colorful bears.  The British bear has me a bit flummoxed as well.  The flag I understand but the headdress and goggles, I don’t comprehend.  Someone care to explain this to me?

My KZ Students – Photo Contest Prize Winners

Last Sunday I displayed at the AIWC Charity Bazaar the 22 entries that qualified as the finalists for the Photo Contest that I sponsored amongst my 100 students of this semester.  I got some really good entries and was glad to have two judges who had the tough job of deciding on the winners.  The following photos were chosen of three top photographers: Roza Sviridenko, a law student from my masters class, (Stained Glass Window and “Secret Treasurer” in Paris). Daniyar Belkhojayev, from my academic writing class (Zerenda Lake and Almaty Mtns).  Finally Yuliya An, from my academic listening classes (Daydreaming and Trailer Going Nowhere, Greece).  My students travel!!!
