The Morning Glory of Almaty

The sunlight was streaking into my room through the pale curtains when I awoke the next morning, having slept through until noon after the adventures of the night before.

When I stumbled out onto the balcony, it turned out my impressions from the night before were not incorrect.

We were far away from civilization.

Then I stepped out onto the balcony:

The building was colossal.

I brought my camera out, and confirmed my last suspicion:

Beautiful mountains were awaiting me in the distance.

But first, my stomach clamored for breakfast.

So I started the trek down the hall.

Kilometers away and 7 stories below, food beckoned.
