Another Sunday in Atyrau.


Well the week has flown by. Time for my, by now, customary Sunday walk about and shopping town. Steven is away so we are down to just Peter and me. No problem there. Off we went at our usual 11.0 am start. Plan was a good walk, lunch and some shopping.
Easy. We walked towards town passing over one of the main bridges and then turned along the side following the river. Lovely wide walkways with over hanging trees for shade, and we had the sun shining, light breeze, with hardly anyone around. Ideal conditions for a walk. 

I’m told the locals come out in the evenings, not the middle of the day. However we did spot three old ladies enjoying their time out in the shade of a few trees and moving on came across a few swimmers and sunbathers on the river side. There was even a sort of beach to sit on. Looked sandy enough but I refrained of getting to close but would love to know the water temperature.
The walk followed by lunch and shopping was it. Then a Taxi home and an early night ready for Monday morning. That’s another Sunday gone.
