Tales from KZ

Kazakhstan. Perry. A New Community.

SMS Kazakhstan

My friend, Chiara, has been traveling around Kazakhstan for the last few weeks.  Here are some of her text messages:

Astana is cold.

This bus could be anywhere for all I know, kind of looks like a snowy version of the moon.

I don’t know…I’m somewhere…I hope.

Just 2 more hours. I’m lonely and I really want a cheeseburger.

Feeling super nauseous…how far is the apt?

Someone just took a SHIT in front of the mosque mall

Having a WEIRD day in aralsk

Everyone seems to think I’m going to get robbed or murdered

Spent the first 2.5 hours with the militsia who turned out to be fairly good company

I do a great angry soviet face

Call me when you’re bored…there’s a 1 in 3 chance I’ll be on a train somewhere

I’m back at that Turkish restaurant again, much to the wait staff’s overwhelming delight.

No, I didn’t get arrested, and I even made a friend!
