One Week Before Astana Day…

Category: Anna's Photos,Kazakhstan,Personal,PicturesChrisM @ 3:27 pm

Well, eight days I think, but anyway, as this was the 26th June again, you can see the camera batteries took a bit of a battering. We took Anna out for her (almost) daily walk, and decided to check out how the preparations for Astana Day (and the International Religious Tolerance Forum) were coming along. If you have ever seen pictures of Yurts, and wondered how they were made, and the process that creates them, you’ll hopefully get a slightly better idea soon. If you’re reading this on the front page, you’ll need to click the link under the first photo to see the rest – there are a lot, and so to keep the front page readable, I’ve hidden them away.

Yes, I know the last image in the set below is a repeat of the one before the fold. I’ve just spent 20 minutes battling with WordPress’ image gallery, and given up I’m afraid. I also had to type out the descriptions for some of these pictures four times, before I remembered to click Save Changes before Insert Gallery :/ I’ll learn eventually.
