Kaulan Kusaiynkhan and Julia McClain are a married couple working at Astana EXPO-2017 as volunteers, Kazinform reports.
They are from California but originally met in Astana several years ago. Kaulan is Kazakh born in China, he calls himself an oralman. Julia is from the United States. The couple tied the knot half a year ago in California.
Julia says she needed a year to learn Kazakh with the help of two teachers - one in Shchuchinsk and one in Shymkent. Both Julia and her husband speak Chinese fluently. Julia teaches English and Kaulan works at China Pavilion at Astana EXPO-2017.
