Hello from London, England. I was fortunate to work and spend time in Kazakhstan for a few years in the 00’s in Almaty, Atyrau and Tengiz. I’ll always remember a colleague telling me (and I paraphrase). “The thing with us Kazakh’s Ben is that we spent millennia on the steppes, just watching.. watching our horses. This is what we do, we don’t say much. We watch. We watch and we see. We see and then we understand”. I’ll always remember that.
Chris Culpin
37:24
I love the story from Waterlog of Roger swimming down a trout stream with the Water-bailiffs shouting at him from the banks!

Hello from south London, where I find great solace in the trees and wildlife on my doorstep in this urban environment.
Rose Berger
39:27
What might a post-colonialist critique of Roger’s Kazahk adventure might be? How might this perspective add needed complexity to this type of storytelling?
Tara Shepersky
41:08
Rose, that’s a great question and I’d love to hear Rob’s answer. Could you put the question in the Q&A box? I don’t think they’ll see it here in chat.
Rose Berger

done

In 2009 I was making my first silkscreen for my students at school of Greenman. When I cleaned up I found a review of Roger’s book Wildwood which I bough. The poster said Be Green and the kids saved so much energy with their Power Down Friday project headed up by Greenman!
