We've been here over 6 years now, which is why I'm not updating this blog much... Not much new is happening!

They pay you how much?!
A friend's teenaged relative was working at one of the cafes on the top floor of Artyom, the huge, cheap bazaar/shopping center. She said she was paid 1000 Tenge (less than $7) for an entire day of work.
Wow. Yes, that's against the law here, but apparently the law isn't too well followed.
