Kormilowka - our finish town and birthplace of Evgenii - began 110 years
ago as water and food stop for post-service horses on their way from Omsk
into the long distances of middle Siberia.
We now leave Omsk behind us and, as the horses, run towards Lake Baikal;
2500km. or 1 1/2 month down the road.
To us Omsk was a pleasant surprise and for me (J.) personally, it is the
russian "big city" that I like most.
Definately worth a visit - ofcourse our opinion may be based on the
excellent host who made us feel at home in Siberia;
Bolsjoy spaciba Matvei!! :-)
About todays stage itself its sufficient to say it was HOT. At the last
waterstop we choose to jump into a small lake to escape the +34C. for 5
