For the sake of privacy, we are creating a separate journal for our updates from Kazakhstan. It won't link back to this site. If you'd like the address, send me an email. If I know you and trust you, I'll be more than happy to give you the address. I'll probably do most of the updating while we're there, until I leave, and then Keith will be in charge of posting. If that alone isn't reason enough to read along, I don't know what is.
You can email me at manicotti at hotmail dot com. I'll send the address out closer to our travel dates, probably in another week or two.
