On ErsatzExpat, a Dutch-born serial expat now living in Kazakhstan comments on the stories that resonate with her. For example: 

“Laura Kennedy’s chapter talks of her family’s relationship with the dvor, the courtyard of her apartment block and how it has served to help her and her children integrate into the community of the building. Living in an almost exclusively Kazakh building we have come to recognise the importance of the courtyard in helping us make friends and settle into our home. ” Find the full review here.

“Drinking Camel’s Milk in the Yurt is an anthology by expats of different nationalities; it’s nice to hear so many different points of view on Kazakhstan. With so few resources about this country available, this is a must-read for anyone who’s eager to learn more.” Stephanie (http://whereintheworld-stephanie.blogspot.com) is an American writer and editor who has lived in Burundi and India. Find the review here (scroll to bottom of page). (Her review can also be found here on GoodReads.com.)
