Welcome to Almaty, dear friends!!! As you know, Almaty is an one of the biggest city in Kazakhstan. Of course, there are many foreigners as You. And sometimes they have some misunderstandings ( I mean problems with communicating). So… Today I would like to help with Building relationships with citizens` of Almaty.
