Wedding adventures

Saturdays are big wedding days in Kazakhstan (and Ukraine as well). All day long, I hear cars honking their horns as they travel up and down the main road in town. Since I live right on the main road, I hear them all!

Today, I went for a walk and found it humorous to see all the caravans of cars following limousines and other lead cars. There were even competing caravans to see who could honk their horns the longest as they passed one another.

The tradition is to visit all the main picturesque places and historical memorials after the official wedding ceremony to take pictures. Afterwards, they will have a large sit down dinner that will last for hours (and even days in some cases!).
