six years ago, i arrived in uzbekistan just after that country's independence day. i guess arriving right after that celebration is what i do with all the central asian countries.
we're leaving home in about an hour and a half. we have 1.5 days in frankfurt and then we continue to almaty, 11 time zones away, and then switch planes again and back up to aqtobe only 10 time zones away. i do plan to post while i'm away, i just don't know how often that will be.
