Winter Camp

Food is an important element of the Kazakh hospitality tradition. When guests arrive, the household sets out a special bowl containing homemade cheeses, flour pastries (baurzak), sugar cubes, and candy. As a guest, you are obliged to part take in drinking Vodka shots and mare’s milk (kimiz). I learned rapidly that pacing myself was not impolite and would keep me sound longer, as my cup kept being refilled.
