A hike in the mountains
One Friday, the Peace Corps took us on an excusion to the mountains. The day was beautiful, and we got to go hiking along a creek.
The mountains were incredible. This picture does not in anyway do them justice. Simply gorgeous.
At the end of the hike, there was a very nice waterfall where we hung out for several hours.
Our Kazakh teacher, Aigul, is amazing!
All 65 Kaz-21 Peace Corps trainees, in front of a giant "Golden Man" statue. The Golden Man, the greatest archeaological find in Kazakhstan, was found very near where I live now and is a national symbol.
