So, after hearing the 'story' we all started to the mall. For me, this city is not a developing city at all. When someone sees the architecture, we would definitely change our perspective about the city. The city itself is newly built and all the buildings must about 1 to 10 years old. For instance, the mall was opened only on July 2010 and it is in the shape of a giant tent. As the name Khan-Shatyr itself means Royal Marquee which was the ancient type of house. It is also the highest tensile structure in the world.
Where was I?!?! Oh, ya. We went to this mall and had some wonderful time there. There were few rides inside the mall and we tried one - Load and Reload. Some of us tried and had some nice fun. :-) When I was a school kid and when I see a foreigner, I used to take pics with them. The same happened for me as well. We were approached by a family to take a pic along with them. It seems because we were from India. There was a Sky beach club in the mall which had a beach setup, gym, swimming pool, spa and a jogging track. The original price for a day is 62$, Liza was able to get some corporate discount and for us it is only 25$. Not sure how many of us will be using it but it was quite a discount.We had our lunch at the food court in the mall. There was KFC, Pizza to name a few. Word of the Day - Cheese is called as syr in Russian.
