I met some students from Kazakstan when taking a course in Beijing University. I had no idea prior to that that they look so much like Koreans! That's an interesting discovery to me. I wonder what else that might be interesting in this country too! A Fund Manager friend of me had recommend a visit, we went to Peru together. So, I hope to go soon. May be this year?
An Indonesian friend of mine recommended it. Claimed it's not only a seaside resort kind of vacation, it's also full of artists who reside here. I think she went with her husband who's art collector (professionally a lawyer).
Miss Universe hometown? Well, I've seen more beautiful women from this country than anywhere else in the world. Wonder if it's the water or something they eat. Gotta find out so I can improve myself ;-)
