I’m alive, well, happy, and learning sooo much! I am currently sitting in a closet with 7 computers, a boy spitting in my face, and someone smoking, and yet I am soooo happy to have internet and be able to say hello!!!
Well I am living in a village close to Almaty with a awesome family of 4. I have my my own little apartment/house dealio and a lovely toliet/hole in the ground. No running water, but I have electricity and watch russian news from time to time.
There is sooo much to tell, but I don’t even know where to begin…. Well my initial reservations are gone and I’m excited for this new journey. I feel very comfortable and have moments where I am walking or doing whatever and go…" I am in Kazakhstan… I am in the Peace Corps…. Weird." Its nuts. I am learning Kazak and feel like in the short time being here have picked it up really quickly… so thats good. There are cows and donkeys that roam the street. Just yesterday we saw a boy chasing a cow who had its feet tied up. It was like Kaz cow tipping… kinda sad… but I laughed. I eat a lot of apples. no but seriously. Well for now at least… it was 50 degrees last night and snowing in the mountians. Mountains!!! So beautiful here!!! OH man…. Wish I could upload a photo or two… next time.
Thank you to everyone who sent letters and postcards!! I got a batch of them the other day and it was awesome!!!
