“Oh my, that’s scandalous!” was my reaction when I first heard about the Vagina Monologues. “Vagina” is not a word used casually where I come from—in fact, it is frowned upon.

During Stalinist totalitarianism, among the Gulag labor forced camps there was a camp for women on the territory of former Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic called ALZHIR (1938-1953). This specific name, which means Akmola Camp for Wives of Traitors of Motherland (translated from Russian "Akmolinskii Lager Zhen Izmennikov Rodiny") was given by the female prisoners themselves. This camp was different from others, for it imprisoned women for only being wives, mothers and daughters of political oppositionists.

The catering company, Marsbeli, recently opened a restaurant in the 2nd floor right outside the library with a view of the Daube down the street. If you want a full-fledged, delicious meal then this is your place to be.
