so my daughter and I had to make a quick trip to Almaty.
Almaty is the largest city here in Kazakhstan and at one point served as it's capital. It's gorgeous and you can be certain that there is so much to see here.
Unfortunately our quick trip is not a leisurely, touristy trip. Its to get a test done required by the UK government for a student visa.
These processes are never easy and time consuming, but necessary.
And so here we are in Almaty, a city formerly known as Alma-Ata.
we did manage to make a stop at one of their markets. Interesting to say the least - but a real market!!
