While going through some old pictures (and wow I have A LOT) made a little selection from Almaty (a city I live in) and places around it and really wanted to share those here ๐Ÿ™‚

The Ascension Cathedral in Almaty

View of a city from the Kok-Tobe mountainย 

Big Almaty Lake ย and road there

Lake Issyk

Canyon Charyn – this one is about 3-4 hours drive from Almaty

Some other pictures

And finally poppies! ๐Ÿ™‚ Not every spring, but quite often we get fields covered with lots and lots of poppies.
