Thursday Things: Checking in!

Kazakh Tress are white

It’s Thursday again, but I don’t have much to say. I arrived in Kazakhstan a few days ago, and I’m still attempting to adjust. I’m finding it pretty difficult so far. The apartment we are in right now is really not the best and the jet lag is kicking my butt right now. I can’t tell if I’m just going through a normal adjustment period or if its something more. Only time will tell, but I just wanted to let everyone know that everything’s okay over here. Hopefully I will have more to write about soon. Enjoy your weekends!

    I can’t imagine how difficult it must be adjust to life over there! Hopefully things will get a bit better soon. It’s probably gloomy and you’re still a bit unadjusted with jet lag and all. Do you speak any Russian? (Who doesn’t, amIright?! [just kidding – I know literally one person who speaks Russian])

      It’s getting a lot better. I’m going to post more about it tomorrow. And no, I don’t speak any Russian. I am just learning how to say hi and thank you right now, and I only know 1 person who speaks it too (well now that I’m hear I know a few more but you know what I mean…). Hopefully I’ll learn a little more before I leave!
