danielkrutzelmann: Spent 3 weeks in Kazakhstan this fall; beautiful countryside, amazing food(so much meat an onions), great people, and lots of old ruins. It definitely going to go back, too big to see in such a short time.
hihihihihigih: Interesting documentary on the people that were filmed in Romania in the town known as mud. I think it’s called when Borat came to town ?
FakeNews21: Then why does every Kazakh I know hate this movie with a fiery passion?
JesusMcMexican: Wasn’t the specific village that Borat was from really angry about the movie?
gazm2k5: I bet all the Borat fans the consequently visited Kazakhstan after seeing the film were super obnoxious, both to their friends around the time of their holiday, and to the locals of Kazakhstan on their holiday.

CKBStrat0s: What kind of person is watching Borat and just thinks “Huh, I want to go there.”.
Sunstoned1: I’m hosting an exchange student from Kazakhstan this year. She’s never seen the movie. I told her it’s not making fun of Kazakhs, it’s making fun of American ignorance. Not sure she believes me.
cepi11o: “Jantemir Baimukhamedov travelled to London with the stated aim of presenting Baron Cohen with horse meat and horse urine, which were claimed by Borat to be the national food and drink of Kazakhstan”
Wow haha this guy knows how to piss a country off.. wish he made fun of Donald Trump
raymanh: Ironically what was claimed in Borat to be Kazakstan was mostly Romania
BanditandSnowman: Yeah, they used to issue one visa a year, now it’s up to 10! Great success…. Or maybe visitors are attracted to the worlds best pubic hair supplier? Merkins are Kazakhstan’s main export aren’t they?

Just done with life
