Thoughts on Kazakhstan
Submitted by christine on 2007-06-14 01:47:04 (via www.gapyear.com)
Kazakhstan is full of anomalies where nothing quite adds up, neither Asia nor Europe, but betwixt and between. People go to any lengths to help you feel welcome in their country. At times, this can go quite far and become annoying. Here is a curious experience in Kazakhstan of two girls who set off on a journey supporting a charitable cause.

I am from Kazakstan. Girls described it the way they saw it. i see it a bit different though. Nazarbaev is not that dictator as it was said. the country is developing with him a lot. They just didn't see it 15 years ago. It is true that it is still poor, but very beautiful and resaurses are amazaing too. I hope my country will be much better in couple years, it is slowly growing anyway. Actually, our President made a big progress. After Soviet union broke up, the country was terrible, and it took him only 10 years, to improve it. I love you, Kazakstan!

It seems like all the people who live in Kazakhstan are very fond of their ex-president, unlike the foreigners. maybe it's just a difference of mentalities. What other beauties does Kazakhstan have that are worthy to be seen?

Hi, I'm quite impressed with your patriotism... in comparison with the author's observations. I quess it depends to what you compare it...

How well developed is tourism in Kazakhstan? What are some of the main attractions one could visit? I'm sure there must be beautiful sites...

According to this article the Kazakhstan seems like full of drunk people living in the villiges...It is true but not all of it...Why would go to Kazakhstan's villiges???That's what i don't understand...And what she expected to see going to "lonely steppes" as she said???Of course in the middle of nowhere u'll see nothing at all...only rural people who has been living there for their whole life...Well, let's just compare Kazakhstan and US. I lived in US for a year in city called Savannah,GA...sounds like pretty nice place huh? But when I went there I was shocked becuz people don't ride a bus...there are bus stops but u have o wait for it like for ages...i've met people whohave never flew on airplane...and actually the most part of US don't have a sidewalks...only in big cities like LA or NY...the point is that every country has it's subburbs right? And when u travel go to the most famous places...don't just seek for rural "lonely steppes" whatever...Kazakhstan has many beautiful places...such as Burovoe(it's also called little switzerland)Almaty has a most beautiful mountains in the whole world, also gorgeos Charyn canyons(there are 2 big canyons in the world,adthis is the 2nd)...And about president...He is not a dictator...he has done a lot of good things to develop Kazakhstan's economy...And our GDP is higher than a Russia's...Pretty impressive huh?Among countries of CIA we're the most stabilized and successful...So i'm proud that I'm Kazakh...and i don't care what ppl say...Just come and visit us and u'll see the thruth...
P.S. Guys sorry for my grammar...
