Did you notice that cool little count down clock right there to the left? Yup, that's right, we have travel dates! We are slated to fly out on Monday, August 20th and arrive in Bishkek August 22nd. No word when I'll get to pick up that handsome little man, but it'll be between then and the 29th when we trek to Almaty, wrap up business and *hopefully* fly home September 1st. I emphasize *hopefully* since there are actually no seats available on any flights leaving Almaty until September 12th. So we're wait-listed for tickets right now.
I have to wonder why the mass end-of-summer exodus out of Kazahkstan??? Who knew it was such a vacation destination?! I'm starting to picture Kazahkstan like that lovely mountain resort featured in "Dirty Dancing", filled with arts and crafts, shuffleboard, and fox trot lessons. Hmmmmm, wonder if we'll be present for the end of season talent show? OK, OK, I suppose Kazahkstan is nothing at all like Kellerman's, but I'm still curious, where the heck is everyone going? Regardless, I'm very excited about traveling, but even more excited about bringing Beck home.
