On this Sunday, 13 of May, our 147 and 158 GM groups went on excursion to the homeland of the great Kazakh poet Abay. The event was organized as part of program «Рухани жаңғыру. Modernization of Kazakhstanian`s identity» by the Committee for Youth Affairs - two buses and patrol escorts were ordered. The road to the village Zhidebay was not close, but very interesting. The students got to know each other closer, played games, sang songs in Kazakh. We, foreign students, really liked the song «Көзімнің қарасы» on verses of Abai. We also recalled one of his poems «Кел, балалар, оқылық», which was taught in the lesson of Kazakh language.
In the village Zhidebay we saw many interesting things. Especially fascinating was the excursion in the house where the great poet lived. We saw objects of Kazakh life: wooden utensils, carpets, kiiz, chests, saddle, weapons. Very interesting is the architecture of the building for events, built in the style of the amphitheater - stairs, beautifully descending down, turrets for penetration of sunlight. We also honored the memory of lovers Enlik and Kebek, visiting their grave. Indeed, the power of true love will survive centuries. Although this tour was a long and expensive journey, we were very pleased and happy that we were able to touch the culture of the Kazakh people.
