Jo sent me this card as a surprise just before she left Kazakhstan......and thanks to her, i have all my 3 Kazakhstan cards in the collection
The funny/odd thing is that if you go to google maps for example, it doesnt return any search results about it...on google either...it keeps giving me reference for some Kurgan region in Russia, or about some chemical weapons destruction plant. ...I wonder if there might be some mix up (Kazakhstan borders Russia after all), or from the starters im searching for the wrong thing.
Either way, the card is still a beautiful one, and of course, any clearing up about the above issue is more than welcome
the Golden eagle stamp was issued in 2008 in a set of 4 definitives under the subject of Fauna, while the other one is from a set of 8 definitives showing Astana, which is the capital and second largest city in Kazakhstan
