Cover from Kazakhstan with Postcrossing stamp!

I have received cover from Kazakhstan with postcard inside. Stamps on cover:
The 100th Anniversary of the Birth of Ilyas Esenberlin, 1915-1983, issued on 18.06.2015.
Happy Postcrossing!, issued on 07.11.2015.
National Costume, issued on 20.11.2012.

Postcard inside is dedicated to national Kazakh hunting with eagles. Racing through the mountain range on horseback, the Kazakh people of the Altai Region in Western Mongolia practice their ancient tradition of hunting with golden eagles. Around 70 Kazakh eagle hunters take part in the annual Golden Eagle festival and the following set of breathtaking images display the 4,000-year-old art in all of its glory.

Thank you Yevgeniya!
