“Bearly” Finished with the “United Buddy Bears”

With a gallery of over 125 United Buddy Bears standing with arms reaching above their heads in Astana, Kazakhstan, close to the Baiterek Tower, I have more photos to show.  One poster explains this better than I ever could:

“We have to get to know each other better…it makes us understand one another better, trust each other more, and live together more peacefully.”  Under this motto, the UNITED BUDDY BEARS promote living together in peace and harmony on their global tour…since the first exhibition in Berlin in 2002, around 22 million visitors world-wide have been able to admire the United Buddy Bears.”

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?
