Route Report: (Roadsign 1830 on E30,M5) - Chelyabinsk (city square,
44km., 4:48h. (Kazuka +30min. at last foodstop, but finish together).
A nice stage and beautiful views in their own special way!
To take some of drama out of Siberia I can say that during the run it at
times reminded me of the nature near my last adress in Denmark.
Especially the the near-Copenhagen wetlands and birds nestingplace
Ofcourse the houses, architecture and people are different; mostly
emptyness is present, but the same birdlife in the high golden grass near
small moores and lakes rounded by small white birch trees.
So at last the beginning is far from being as scary as the stories and
advice we hear, when we mention "Siberia", "running" and "5 months/8000km"
But a bit omnious, my stopwatch stopped working after 48 hours in Siberian
We hope it isnt a sign of troubles ahead;-)
By the way: Today it was Lenins birthday! This was celebrated by local
young and old people who cleaned the nature and roadside with small wodden
-What might be interesting to know is, that East of Moscow mr. Vladimir
Illitz Lenin seems still to be "The Man".
At last as far as statues, signs and flower decoration goes.
