Asian Games Torch
KazInform has a little map up of when the torch will be where. It arrives in Almaty today and will be sent all around Kazakhstan before arriving in Astana on the 30th of January for the opening ceremonies. The map is in Russian, but it shows the cities of Kazakhstan and the date next to them. Pretty straightforward.
There’s also a scheme of the entourage that will follow the torch bearers around: 11 cars. That’s more than usually accompany the Prime Minister or the President! And apparently for every one runner there are 6 “torch protectors”, whose job is presumably to make sure the flame stays lit, it doesn’t run out of gas, and so on. As opposed to armed guards.
