Kazakh Stan

Our man "Stan" has come back to Blightly for a few days "to cool off" and "hang out with some women that don't have long bushy beards" before heading back to the frying pan that is Kazakhstan tomorrow. I wonder idly if Jet2 do flights from Leeds/Bradford? Stag weekends in Kazakhstan, women in kaftan's with long bushy beards gyrating seductively around a scaffolding pole. It might catch on.

Anyway, "Stan" says that when he left, "they were suffering a serious drought – only having had 7mm of rain since 1st April – so wheat was wilting – literally & OSR was being desiccated in situ – as they also have those very strong drying winds – so not sure what to expect next week..!!!"

More as we get it....
