Being vegan in Kazakhstan.

Hi everyone!
A bit about myself: I am in my early twenties, teacher in Language center (English), love all outdoor sports and having green smoothies :)
I used to think that it would be impossible to be vegan in KZ. Most people here are quite close minded and the culture is very much corpses-crunching. But I tried and I could! I was alone for first 2 years, but now know few vegetarians here in Astana (city where I'm living now), and few of my friends are looking into stopping consuming animal products too.
