You can never get enough of travelling because it is always interesting to know what is going on over there, behind the windows of your car. This time we are going on a trip from Almaty to Astana so don’t forget to fasten your seatbelts.
142 km. Near Aidarly Village. Taisiya and her family have 10 m2 of land where they grow watermelons for sale. In winter, they grow and take care of their cattle.
171 km. Kongenshel Village. This cafe was opened 10 years ago by Kuralay’s parents. Today it is a place well-known among haulers, hunters, fishermen and police officers.
Recently, Kuralay returned from China where her special needs daughter was operated on. The woman paid $9,000 for the operation but her daughter still cannot walk by herself. Kuralay hopes that she will get better.
Zhazerke cleans up the table because lunchtime is the busiest part of the day for her, even though they open 24 hours.
The truck of these two haulers has broken down.
Rustem is a certified brewer but he failed to find a good job to provide for his family. Now he is a hauler.
Haulers always support each other on the road.
