One of the old Soviet Union guidelines Kazakhstan has kept is that within five days of arrival, all guests of the country need to register their locations with the government. Apparently most hotels do this at the front desk, but not ours. Originally it was thought that the Sanitarium would do this for the residents of the former CIS countries so it was only the coordinator, the three presenters and I would need to worry about getting this stamp, but now it has been learned that the Sanitarium doesn’t register anyone so there are 16 of us who need this stamp. The plan is to have someone from the Actuarial Society of Kazakhstan take our passports somewhere and get the stamp. Why do we really care? Oh, did I not mention that without that stamp we can’t leave Kazakhstan? Tim was told not to worry, they are looking for 400 more actuaries in Kazakhstan.
