Have ever thought of visiting Kazakhstan crossed your mind?

Whenever I go abroad and mention to people that I come from Kazakhstan I always get a big laugh at my face... Not a good feeling... Most of you are probably wondering why would someone laugh when the country is getting mentioned, I'll tell you why.

Have you ever watched a movie called "Borat"? I haven't. Most of foreigners have. For those that dont have a clue I will tell a short story about the movie.

The movie is about a character called - Borat, who basically comes from Kazakstan and shows in a manner the life of kazakh people that have nothing to do with truth.

If you ever vizit Kazakhstan, you will see that life and people there is compltely opposite to what is shown in the movie.

Kazakh people are very hospitable and generous. Most foreigners fall in love with the country and its people for the way they get treated as guests there. People have an authentic manner at inviting guests to their homes and they never leave their homes without eating a big traditional meal.

There are many delicious dishes in Kazakh kitchen that most people love.

Many national restaurants are decorated like history museums with an old fashion manners of living where guests can get to know a little bit of kazakh history and the way kazakh people used to live. Usually local people try to invite their foreign guests to such restaurants in order to show them how rich and paintfull kazakh old traditions could be.

The main kazakh tradition when inviting guests to their homes is to kill a ram and give its head (after cooking it, of course) to the most respectable person among the guests, so that he (usually its given to a man) can divide its parts like ears, eyes, tongue and give them to different people. The foreigners usually refuse to take a part in this tradition as they dont feel comfortable with dealing with cut ship's head but local men feel proud when get this honour.

This was a tiny part of introduction to a rich traditional Kazakh life. Come to Kazakhstan to get an opportunity to get acquinted to the country's history, traditions and culture.

The country is very big and it is in top -10 among the largest countries in the world. If you ever decide to visit Kazakhstan you will never regret of doing it once in a lifetime.
