So Astana in the new capitol of Kazak, since only 1996, lots glitz.
Journey 230km from Borovoe on pristine 3 lane fast motorway with light traffic, does have a toll - but not for bikes.
City is friendly, especially local bikers, have invite stay in summer house tomorrow with Vitaley & family. But struggle to find a bike shop for new gloves etc.
Route takes a turn south somewhere here, now 8500km East from Amsterdam, with approx 1500km to China border.
Visit Almaty is possible for a few more km on bike, a beatiful old city in mountains, does have approx 50 earthquakes/month - a good reason to move capitol elsewhere.
