Kazakhstan - Бəйтерек

Bayterek (Kazakh: Бəйтерек, "tall poplar [tree]"), a monument and observation tower in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan. A tourist attraction popular with foreign visitors and native Kazakhstanis alike, it is a common symbol of the city and itself in turn symbolizes Astana's new status as the capital of Kazakhstan.

The first of the five postcards sent by Amir from Karaganda in Kazakhstan.
