A Picture Post!

I'm going to post a few pictures today, with the caveat that I didn't really know what I was photographing a good part of the time.  Yesterday brought some frustrations, namely internet problems, our ceiling lights shorting out twice, and a lack of hot water for possibly the next couple of weeks.  However, it also brought a picnic, and with that, a chance to leave campus.  A couple of these were taken at the park where the picnic was held, a few from the bus, and one from our apartment window.

I was interested in getting the flower displays here, but there is an awful lot of bus in the way.

View from our apartment window.  Notice all the construction going on.

  1. Thank you for sharing. Your apartment seems to be up high; what floor are you on?

    1. Hi, Erin! We're on the tenth floor. I would actually prefer to be on a lower floor for a number of reasons, but we do get a long range view from up here.

  3. Welcome in Kazakhstan! I can't wait to hear more. Glad you arrived safely.
