ANDRE KUIPERS, COSMONAUT:
- Expo was of course very interesting and I think a lot of people should go there and on top of that you are in a beautiful place, so everybody should be welcomed there. I’ve been in Baikonur ten times over the years and also in Astana but I didn’t see much of the rest of the country because I was preparing for space flight. So, I’m looking forward to see things, beautiful things in the country and the country itself, the countryside. I did a lot by plane and I would love to do a lot by car. So, the culture is interesting and the buildings. So I look forward to it. Baikonur is of course a very historical place, very important place.
