Pictures From A Recent Saturday Walk

Before the cold sets in, Scott and I have been trying to take advantage of the weather and go on some walks over the weekend.  I saw a few things I'd never seen before on one of these walks, so I'm glad I had my camera!

This year marks the 550th anniversary of the Kazakh Khanate, so at least some of the new decorations were in honor of that.

Apologies to the complete strangers in the picture--I wasn't patient enough to wait to take the photo!
I wondered if these horses might have had to do with the anniversary, too, since I don't recall seeing them before.

My favorite one was painted with pomegranates.  Too bad pomegranates don't actually grow in Astana!

I was curious about the origins of this one, too.  I wondered if it might have been sponsored by the Israeli government or maybe the local Chabad.

No matter what the occasion, there is always more room for fake plants here.

And a sculpture I had never seen before!  Near something that looks like a disco ball!
