Good to have you. I take it from your comment that there are few pipe smokers where you are from? Same with pipe makers? I guess I just assumed in what I consider "the old worlds area" I imagined more pipe lovers. Weren't pipes first found to originate in Egypt and then I assume moved up and out from there?

Greetings from Idaho, USA. WELCOME TO THE FORUM.
As part of a graduate program I attended several years ago, I was able to visit Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan for one week in each country. I very much enjoyed my time there. We spent most of our time in Kazakhstan around Astana. Had some amazing food and of course lots of wonderfully made local vodka.

Beautiful country and wonderful people!
I look forward to your posts on the forum.

Қош келдіңіз! Түркиядағы Анталиядағы ағам сізге маған қарағанда жақынырақ тұрады. Сіздің осында екеніңізге қуаныштымыз. Қош келдіңіз, Висконсин, АҚШ!

Or,

Добро пожаловать! Мой брат в Анталии, Турция, живет намного ближе к вам, чем я. Мы рады, что вы здесь. Добро пожаловать из Висконсина, США!

Or,

Welcome! My brother in Antalya, Turkey, lives much closer to you than I do. We're glad that you're here. Welcome, from Wisconsin, USA!

(And no, I know neither Kazakh nor Russian, but Google Translate is fun.)

Добро пожаловать! Вы живете в степи или в горах?

Добро пожаловать из Сиднея, штат Оз.
Интересно, если мы проведем опрос участников, сколько стран будет представлено?
да, это было бы интересно!

Привет! Я живу в городе Алматы - город расположен в предгорьях Заилийского Алатау. Немного похоже на швейцарские Альпы. Также есть каньон, похожий на Гранд-Каньон. Мы зовем его Чарын.

Greetings! I live in the city of Almaty - the city is located in the foothills of the Zailisky Alatau. A bit like the Swiss Alps. There is also a canyon that is similar to the Grand Canyon. We call him Charyn.
