Сontinuation of the chronicles of chaos.
IG posts from a person who lives in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Maria (@eng_focus) is an English and Russian tutor, a songwriter, a singer, and an inspiring person. Last summer she was a guest of my zoom talk show “Russian Speaks”.
Here, I am publishing “chronicles of chaos” (as she calls it) and with her permission. Also I leave a link to her IG account.

There were queues at the cashiers for 20 minutes.
The police appeared at the intersections – for the first time in all these days. The policemen selectively stopped cars, checked documents.
