Republic Day

Today was Republic Day in Kazakhstan.  There were celebrations in every center I visited today.  Eastern European/ Central Asians like their celebrations and they were celebrating all over the city.

Government offices will be closed until Sunday so there will be fewer people driving for the next few days.

I was able to play basketball tonight and it snowed off and on most of the day, however the ground is still too warm for it to stick.  Well, that will change soon enough…
