Here We Come Kazakhstan

Rate this Entry
It's 99.99% positive that we are leaving this Saturday. I applied for our visas yesterday and should be able to pick them up tomorrow. I will be confirming our flights today and doing some last minute paperwork today and tomorrow.

After enduring 3 years and 8 days of paperwork, delays, more paperwork, delays, updating of paperwork, more delays, our time has arrived.

Virg and I will be very busy these next few days tying up all loose ends. I'm sure he'll be on here just until its time for us to leave

I just want to thank everyone that has given us their support and hope you continue to hold us in your prayers until we are all home safe and sound.

Not sure how often I will be posting anything when we are there but I will let everyone know one way or the other how things go when we are there.

Till then

PS: the temperature in Shymkent is currently 78 degrees F and the first week we are there should be in the mid 80's during the day and at night dip into the low 60's.

    Thank you all. We will try to get on line when we get there. I just saw the itinerary and it's a brutal 24 hours. It's not easy going to the other side to a remote region. How exciting though!! I'm stocking up on Russian literature to take with me.

    We will take plenty of pictures. If we get internet connection we will provide updates and pictures. I'm also keeping a journal for this.

    I can't believe it. =D. I know this isn't going to be a vacation, and is probably going to come with its own set of stresses and worries, but I must say- ENJOY, after how many years of waiting?
