A year in Kazakhstan turned Laura (a proud Romanian) into an avid fan of Borat Sagdiyev (a frequent guest of the Ali G Show), whose work she follows obsessively (she is staying a second year). Borat Sagdiyev is Kazakhstan’s sixth most famous man. A leading journalist from the State-run TV network, Borat reports on all aspects of American life, while sharing with his American friends details of Kazakh culture and society. From baseball to Broadway, Borat asks the questions no westerner would dream of in his tireless quest for knowledge, telling dating agencies he will ‘crush’ women who are unfaithful. Laura would have loved to share more about how Borat and her, but she did not send a blurb in on time and we had to re-create her thoughts based on past-conversations.
