--Logan's Journey to Kazakhstan

Current Location

Astana, Kazakhstan

Всем привет! I am spending the summer studying Russian in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Join me on my journey!


This was my first week in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Although most of my time was occupied by classes and schoolwork, I got to see and do a lot already!


As my summer in Kazakhstan nears the end, I reflect on my time spent here.

Field Notes

Kazakhstan is developing a clean energy infrastructure (the system of buildings, roads and other physical elements that make up a city). I went to the World Expo in Astana to learn about it!


Our cohort went on an excursion to Charyn Canyon, the Kolsai Lakes, and Lake Kaindy. We hiked, swam in 4° C water, rode horses and had our minds blown by Kazakhstan's natural beauty.
