- This year I went to Astana for the first time, - Ainur Bekkojaeva remembers. - At the Expo-2017 I collected a lot of interesting historical information. We put skits, danced, it was very fun.

We visited the Museum of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, I listened very carefully to the stories of our teachers. I saw a lot of cognitive, for example: several types of chess made of gold and wood, decorated with gold costumes, kazan from gold, national chapan ... Most of all I liked the athletes' mountain skis with their signature and the gold belt of Gennady Golovkin.

At Baikonur, we photographed all together at the monument to Yuri Gagarin. Famous pilots told us about how the Great Patriotic War was taking place, about the Kazakh dombra and space flights. I really liked it. In Turkestan, one of the sacred places told us legends about the place where Khoja Ahmet Yassawi was born and raised. I especially liked on Alakol (By the way, the lake's water is fresh). I was very well rested. We played with friends, songs sang, danced, it was very fun. I was in the 3rd detachment. I really liked it, and I already miss my new friends. I want to say a special thanks to my father.

In Turkestan, most of all I remember the museum, I saw dombra and kobyz Korjut ata, sabers and jugs. On Alakol we swam, played, it was very fun. Another circus came to us. I found a lot of new friends, we did not even notice that for such a short time we were very attached to each other. Upon arrival in Astana, we were awarded diplomas and many gifts.
