I’m living and working for the next three months in Almaty, Kazakhstan.  It was a rare opportunity that I felt couldn’t be passed up.  It should be a great introduction to international work and I hope to learn a lot in the process.  While work will keep me occupied most days, I do hope to take some time to learn about the people and culture of Kazakhstan.  It’s a part of the world that we, as Americans, tend to know little, if anything about.  Hopefully this blog will help to change that.
