Today I am offcially a member of the International Womens Club here in Almaty, a great way to meet new people! The meetings are usually held at the Intercontinental Hotel but today it was at the newly completed Golden Tulip Hotel.
This is the foyer! That chandelier is HUGE!
The room where our meeting was held......more chandeliers!
Today we had a talk on the work of UNESCO here in Kazakhstan and the neighbouring countries
A VERY shiny black and gold sofa! Here in Kazakhstan it seems that gold and shiny is the order of the day, the more BLING the better!
After the meeting we wandered just down the road to what looks like a mosque but is in fact a restaurant.......we did not have time for lunch today but I intend to go back, it looks lovely.
The main part of the restaurant......
with tables outside but under cover or you can eat in
a seperate, private dining area where..........
you sit cross-legged around a low table
this guy guards the entrance way!
beautiful wooden carved doors at the entrance. Hope you enjoyed another taste of kazxakhstan!
Hello and welcome!
I like to travel and I'm incurably curious. I love my garden and I like to make things,
I like altered art and mixed media and have a leaning towards the slightly darker, weirder side of things....as you may notice!
