Fun to meet up with Brenda and her friend Sharon the other day in the mountains and at a restaurant that is known to serve shashlik.  No such luck, but the food we enjoyed as we watched the skiers go downhill was fabulous.  I’ve heard so much about Shymbulak, I’m glad I went even though there is much to do to prepare for my trip to the U.S. for one week.  Thank you Julia for the nice time on the slopes!!!

My Medeu Outing – Far from Madding Crowd

julia-at-medeo1Yesterday was a fun outing with Julia driving up to Medeu and beyond to Kazakhstan’s famous Shymbulak skiing area while our ears popped off and on all the way up and down.  I had ice skated at the huge Medeu skating rink the fall of 2007 but I had not been all the way to the top of the reservoir since Ken and I had been dating over 15 years ago.  What a treat to finally experience the Shymbulak ski resort area I had heard so much about. You can see photos of Julia and me enjoying the scenery on what started out to be a sunny, spring day.
