One Year At KMG

Category: Eating Out,Kazakhstan,PersonalChrisM @ 2:28 am

My wife (Irina) has just finished working at KazMunayGaz for one year now. Although the first few weeks were actually unpaid training (sadly not too unusual here in Kazakhstan), she has now been travelling to the building for 52 weeks now.

My congratulations to her for coping with the transition to the Kazakh style of working, and not getting too freaked out by it all. We are hopefully meeting one of her work colleagues after work tomorrow, at a charity event at the local EastWest restaurant. (I’ll post more details on it tomorrow, I believe it is to raise funds for the paralympics team.)

Although life has definitely been quite different in this country, I think she is still glad we moved, and that there are many, many worse companies she could have ended up working for.
