Our documentations at the Consulate in Astana could not be done today. We are therefore delayed by 2 days. Thankfully, our tickets had been reserved, but not officially booked so we will not have to pay an additional fee. We should be departing on Friday (Feb 5th) instead of Wed. (Feb. 3rd). We contacted our travel agent so hopefully there are tickets available...cross your fingers. We were pretty bummed to say the least, but at least we are now in Astana and there are new things to discover.
Our internet has not been working in the last 2 days. We are therefore having to go to an internet cafe at the Mega Centre. Sorry for delaying in responding to e-mails.
Here is a sampling of the neat architecture that we can see from the Mega Centre ;0)) Tomorrow, we plan on taking a tour of the city with Zhanara. I doubt we will go into many building since we have Anna to consider, but just looking at the skyline is enough to appreciate Astana's creative spirit.
