Ah, the Russian road…

Ah, the Russian road…

2006 год (Китай–Лаос–Вьетнам–Мьянма–Таиланд–Малайзия–Индонезия–Австралия–Новая Зеландия–Австралия–Япония–Корея–Россия (Владивосток)–Монголия–Россия)

2006 год

Well, I guess it’s back to the road… And the road now will be quite different! To Mongolia to go more than 4 000 km, and I think that my dear readers can easily imagine waiting for me road extreme, because the road from Vladik to Ulan-Ude – sports and stunt, as it is called truckers and transporters. But, as they say, than are rich, to that and are glad. Still another road will not, and need to go home.

Received many letters from friends and relatives, in which I was congratulated on my way to the finish line and wished not to relax, more vigilance and attention on the Russian roads. And my friend and namesake from the OAU in General wrote that he is calm for me only when I am abroad in any country except Russia. Interesting psychology! I, on the contrary – it is possible to tell, have felt the breath of home. Come on, let’s see how it goes…

Although the roads in Russia are not very good quality, but often see a lot of equipment and people who expand and repair the track. And all -???” caught “I a good hole directly for Chita (this is called”lost vigilance”). So I tossed that gets bags and Luggage – then had 3 hours on new to consolidate your Luggage and redo the mounting.

Almost the entire road passes through the taiga, so there is a sense of confined space – I want to go faster to the expanse, to freedom. And yet attention to me on the part of inspectors of traffic police is slightly unnerving! Well, stopped me, let’s say Hello, talk to God in advance. So no, thoroughly and meticulously check all the documents, and then begin to ask about the light and the like. I also, frankly, after these procedures already and do not want to tell. That’s when I was driving in the direction of the Buryatia Republic, Chita, specifically violated the speed limit, but “traffic cops” stopped me only to take my autograph. And all deal in is, that on the eve in Chita I gave interview two TV channels, and they saw me on our televisions. Generally, in Chita I stayed with his brother Igor, I visited my nephews. They organized the press and television. Wow! Let the Russians also know that their brothers-Kazakhstanis are not blindly sewed and can perform worthy deeds. Nephews said they’re waiting for me and in Ulan-Ude, Irkutsk, and Krasnoyarsk to Novosibirsk.

I have all the time in their reports at least a few lines, but always pay the country that passing. That is why I would like to note the residents of Siberia and the Far East with special warmth. When I stayed in some village or town, many offered all possible help and always invited to the house. But when I in 2004 started the world and went through Russia to the Vatican, he discovered that in the West of Russia the people still another, more incredulous… At all same on a highway is felt domestic de-leveraging environment. Cafes and canteens are usually located on the banks of rivers. Please, always virtually flooded bath and please dive into the river! All conditions for truckers, and the prices are moderate. Once broke – stopped and went into the forest to eat berries and mushrooms. And when I came back to the bike, I was overtaken by such a downpour as a tropical rain in Thailand! Barely managed to cover the bike, and he took refuge under the awning of a motorcycle and thus spent more than an hour, hiding from the water stream. After rain ate the same berries and climbed the cedar, to rip a few cones. Super, but then two days washed from the resin hands.
