am – In only a few hours, Annabelle and I are leaving Kokshetau, once and
for all. It’s been real,
It’s not been fun, Can’t wait to hit the wild town of Almaty. I don’t know if I’m going to
have time to do any sightseeing or shopping but who cares, it’s something
different! And then only a few more
days until I’m home which is what really matters.
try and update this entry later tonight if I can figure out the internet in
Almaty. Meanwhile, here’s a
picture of what Annabelle has been doing with herself this morning.
as a reminder of how it is supposed to look….
a quick note. I arrived safely a few hours ago. I am not exaggerating to say the relief at
arriving in Almaty was the same as when I arrived in Amman,
Jordan after being in Baghdad. A huge sense of
joy flooded through me as I drove through the beautiful streets of Almaty. I am only 20 minute walk from the
beloved Ramstore where tonight I bought only what I could carry with a kid, but
you may be sure the only food was microwave popcorn. Ah, blessed, blessed Almaty.
is a quick peek at the view from my apartment window.
