Well it is happening. Approval and everything has come through so, gentle reader, Thomo is off to Kazakhstan this Thursday. Leaving Seoul in the afternoon and getting into Almaty in the early evening. I shall spend two weeks there.
This will be cool for a couple of reasons. First is that I think that Kazakhstan makes country number 51 I have been to. The second is that the Khazars who (I think) settled there are one of the armies I have an interest in from my hobby.
We shall see. Will Thomo drink the water? What foreigner shuddering food is special in Kazakhstan? All will be revealed here and in Thomo’s Hole over the coming weeks.
