Winter season

Winter season in Aktau can be reached to -20 degree C. My workplace, Kuryk located 80km from Aktau city. Aktau city, most probably is a big town and almost completed with facilities and entertainment place. Currency in Kzk is Tenge ... 1 USD = 120 KZT. Price likes cigarratte (10boxes) cost me around $9 USD. Cheaper than my hometown!

Caspian Sea

Caspian sea, devided between Asian and Europe...and the largest lake in the world (?). The borders of Caspian Sea shared by Azerbaijan, Rusia, Kazakhstan, Turkeministan and Iran. Since 90's, most of the country started to receive an economic impact due to OIl and Gas industry. Kazakhstan almso got a same impact and that's a reason I;m here! hehe ... By the way, caspian sea is a shallow water lake...the water depth is only 4m, and for any barge or ship, they MUST use a tunnel marking in Caspian Sea. Otherwise, it will be stuck.
