'Paradise on Earth'

"I have been in this village for more than ten days and I am in a constant state of euphoria. I haven't seen such hospitality anywhere. Aksakals explained to me that Kazakhs consider a man a guest only on the first day and a relative on the second day. Everyone here treats me as one of their own. I even began to understand the Kazakh language. And nature here is magical. This is paradise on Earth!"

Giorgio Leoni, tourist from Italy
