Schtraffmen and parking

"You know, somebody actually complimented
me on my driving today.
They left a little note on the windscreen,
it said 'Parking Fine.' So that was nice.

If you are looking for parking lots in Almaty, don't waste your time. You can park wherever you are able to put your car. Parking on the pavements is also ok, as you see. Just be careful, your safety is not guaranteed.
On the other side you see Almaty traffic police, called informally "schtraffmen" among expats.
Later I will tell you why, it's a separate topic for discussion.
