What Do We Miss?
Let me preface this blog by saying that we thoroughly enjoy living in Kazakhstan and wouldn’t trade it for anything! Also, hands down, the “thing” we miss the most is not things at all but people…. Family and friends and thankfully because of technology we are able to keep up with a lot of you Stateside. However, we do get asked a lot what we miss from America. SOME things on this list we most certainly CAN get here but at a very high price so we just as soon do without or stock up when we are in the US and just bring it back with us in our suitcases when we visit (or have friends graciously bring it for us)
