Reports from Siberia will be here from the 1st April 2016

 

Now have the benefit of street level GPS maps. Apart from the Racing some of us hope circumb navigate  Ogoy Island and walk up to the Buddist Stupa (one of only two in Russia). if the ice is good enough a challenge for this year. (take some money to place in the box, walk three times round with pure thoughts)

16th April

tues morn adventerous plumbing works, found this hotel only by pushing the walled garden door open, could not see any sign of swyle or hotel, this is Buriat country we found a bar that immediatly closed, good job we had eaten before, no russsian spoken, bar person was from Mongolia, we caught a lift from a local to another bar/ cafe. Monday night in a small remote place like this is not good but locals did come and go, not a single european looking face, then you go out side in the windless crystal clean air and gaze up at the sayan mountains that tower above you (10,000 ft)   what happens today will be another adventure, plan is to drink the holy mineral waters bathe in hot springs and go and see another ice boaters dream, look over the monglian border within sight of the sister lake to Baikal ,   Lake Hovsgol Nuur first we have to find breky.......
