downtown Astana

still working on my photos from this summer…a herculean task! Astana became the capital of Kazakhstan about 15 years ago, and has been built up with gorgeous new buildings, all unique but unified in their style. It takes 3 flights to get there, but if you can ever visit, it is absolutely worth it – and the food is amazing.
