Penwriter posted Moving to Alma Ata. Job opportunities on the Kazakhstan forum:
I have been considering to move to Alma Ata in the nearest future. I have been practicing law for 8 years in Ukraine (including international commercial law). I am an advanced English speaker with a strong business and legal command of the language. Russian and Ukrainian are my native languages. I also started learning Android programming yet it is more like a hobby and I am an absolute rookie in this realm. The reason I think of Alma Ata is that I have a Ukrainian friend in there. He says the city offers very nice opportunities. Any imput/advice would be much appreciated.

My wife and I are considering applying for jobs with NIS but are a bit nervous as we are expecting our fist child in March. She would be 5 months old if we were to make the move for the new school year. Can anyone provide any information on pediatric care? Or child acre? Anyone work at one of the NIS schools and have any insights on potentially working there with a newborn? Thanks!
Biologymann replied most recently with:
My wife was two months pregnant when I started at NIS. We decided that it was best for my wife and elder son to stay at home. While the doctors will be well meaning, do not expect their knowledge and expertise to be up of western standards. Things may be very different in Astana or Almaty. Clearly, most babies flourish or there would be nobody in Kazakhstan. Once the baby becomes a toddler, you are unlikely to have a garden for him to run around in. There are few parks and these lack green grass for him/her to play. I know that my 7 month son has a much better life in England. Also be aware that your apartment may be very dirty on arrival. My second apartment at the start on my second year was covered in a layer of dirt, there was mouldy butter in the fridge, left food in a pan on the cooker and a used condom on the floor in the corner of the lounge. It is a personal decision, but personally, I would not consider taking my family to Kazakhstan with me. PS. Also be aware of the NIS medicals: chest x-rays, rectal swabs, blood tests and gynaecological examinations for female staff. Their justification for the latter is that women sit on toilets! For some, all this is no big deal. For others like me, it is. The medicals are something they do not put in the recruiting adverts! Neither are they mentioned at interview.

aaronflacke posted Photo trip on the Kazakhstan forum:
Hello, My name is Aaron Flacke, and I am a commercial photographer and videographer based in Portland, Maine, USA. I would really like to come to Azerbaijan, and I would like to pay for the trip by taking photos while I am there. I can shoot architecture, products, food, people, whatever you like. For instance, I could take photos of a high-end hotel or resort in exchange for room and meals during my stay. Do you think that there is a need for professional photography in Astana or Kazakhstan? If I can put together 3 or 4 jobs I can make the trip with all my gear, gain some clients, and have an amazing adventure. I would love to hear anyone’s opinion on this idea/plan. Is it stupid? Is it workable? thanks Aaron www.flackephoto.com

Expat Report Christmas In Astana, Kazakhstan was published
If locals celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah where you are living now, how is it celebrated differently?
Kazahstanians do not celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah. They call it New Year. It is celebrated from 31 of December till 1 of January. Very similar to the New Year of russians. (Continue)
nickel replied to the thread Shipping belongings to Aktau from US on the Kazakhstan forum:
orange891 initially posted:
Did anyone ship less than container load from US to Aktau? I am so confused at this point as there are too many companies and I don't wanna pay an arm and leg to ship my own used clothes. Several boxes, probably going to be somewhere between 70-100 kg. If anyone have info< I'd appreciate it. Thanks
nickel replied most recently with:
Why do you want to ship old stuff? If the cost is subsidised by your employer, leave the old stuff back home, get the money from the employer and buy new when you get here.

You can try www.discountshipping.us They ship using DHL and FedEx but offer significantly lower rates than individuals pay to these companies.
