I have been waiting at the Astana airport for almost two hours. My NIS has not showed and I have no contact information for anyone. Can anyone help?

Has someone picked you up now? I have the number of my team leader who I believe is still in Astana for the "orientation". If you need it, email me at as I do not want to post his private number on the forum.

Once again Biologyman and Kimdamio you have been an outstanding resource!!!

Kim, my team leader came to me asking about a blog post (this was after a perfect stranger in the airport called NIS in Astana and explained my situation which led to someone finally coming around nine) and I told him that the blog has been a lifesaver more than once and at the time, it was the only thing I could think to do. He explained how word had traveled all the way from Uralsk that I was stranded.

It is great to know that although I have never met either of you, you both were quick to use your connections to assist me.

I waited for five and a half hours with everyone saying "No English" then my electronics died and I had no communication whatsoever.

Again, thank you so much for caring!!

P.S. This definitely inspired me to get a local phone today. Maybe one day, I will have the pleasure of meeting you both.
