Kostanaj, Kazakhstan

Yesterday we spent about six hours to get into Kazakhstan. Four of them were spent on getting out of Russia. When Russian border authorities are extremely slow and thorough, the Kazakh seem to think that the Russians do the job for them. One of the Kazakh guards even spoke english: "Norway? You guys crazy!"

We are now i Kostanaj, a small town about 150 km south of the Russian border.
We are not that much in a hurry any more, and hope for a couple of days without driving somewhere before we reach Astana.
