I had to go back and pick up this story. Sandi asked Cassidy last night what her favorite kind of pizza was. She said "Mario Pizza."
Add this to the earlier list of "You Know You've Been in Kazakhstan Too Long When..."
We had memories of Mario Pizza ourselves tonight, when we enjoyed a different kind of pizza at a quiet Italian restaurant in Almaty with Steve and Sandi. No Russian MTV blaring on the bigscreen in the background, and no bikini dancers for the kids to avoid. Memories.
This is Aliya holding the menu and enjoying some Mario Pizza crust at one of our many visits there in Karaganda.
