Certainly living in Russia provides a rich vein of anecdotes and experiences to report.
In the three years since Kazakhstan a lot has changed, not least the whole blogger site. I spent last night reading my old posts. It has taken me half an hour to find my old log in and the ways to add images and text have all changed. I know that big beluga is quite poorly edited and full of typos, poor grammar, loose sentence structures. This is a blog, not a book. But I hope it remains fun to read for being current. Please don't be too annoyed by my silly typo mistakes!
