Last glance at Kazakhstan

Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, is a planned city built in the middle of the country’s steppes, close to the Russian border. Taken on the way to the airport, this picture shows the city in the distance at left. Tim said there is absolutely nothing else near it except the vast plains.

The Steppes could bring a bounty of agricultural produce to the country. Perhaps moving the capital here had that in mind. Amazing photo. V

At least there would be nothing in the way to stop take off. How was he flying ?
