St. Patty’s day in Kazakhstan! Celebrated my Irish-by-marriage history by seeing some great countryside in Kazakhstan today. Simply GORGEOUS. Snow capped mountains leading to an internationally renowned winery “Arba Winery in the Assa Vally”. We were treated to a delicious meal for lunch with all local foods. So good!! We also got to see small rural villages that remind me of a time long ago. Horses and horned cattle roaming free, donkeys pulling carts of vegetables and stucco huts with tin roofs. Back in Almaty a few of us ventured out to a famous bath house. Amazing! Best massage ever! Something that cost $40 here would cost $500 at home. Seriously amazing. Ok gotta go! Stay tuned for more later!
