Kazakh go bragh

Well, I'm not sure how much I'll actually say in this post-there's a lot I want to talk about, but I remember an email I got from mein vater reminds me not to blur the line between blog and online journal. Good sense there, nothing I hate more than sounding mopy and whiny. Still, there's a lot I want to talk about, besides what's going on here in the K-stan.

May be getting a touch homesick-but that's not 100% correct-I just want to be able to talk with my family or someone now and then. Also, a hug or two would not be turned down.

Shoot, only got two minutes left...should have started this update sooner. Anyway, 4th of July was fun. Had some of the teachers we taught come over and teach us how to make a Kazakh dish called "Koordak" made of meat and potatoes (and some onions). Went out with some students for pizzza and then went walking. Tried some interesting combonations with a common drink here that I'd have to wait until December 26th of this year to buy in America...



  1. Wow, your vater is so wise. Now, as for the drink-- this didn't have to do with fermented mare's milk, did it?

  2. Nyet Tovarisch, Kumis is nasty, sour stuff. I think ours may have originiated some place further north.

  3. aws! *hug* haha we had a good 4th of July too...yay blowing up illegal fireworks! miss you too bro...can't wait to see you again.

  4. Hi Alexander! I guess I'm slow--I just realized you have a blog. I'm excited about keeping up with your adventures. Take care!
