Team discussions over problems of big city roadfinding. Would be surpised
if there was'nt;-)
We are now working on a standardmodel for city running because Kazuka and
I are still 'cyrillic analfabets' and have so far more or less just been
lucky at finding way on our 3 big city stages.
As far as the running goes the geologi are now: red top soil; long rolling
hills with green valleys. Dense darkgreen forrest on the big hillsides.
We learn that this region is rich on coal and a number of valuable
Its escavated from huge open mines and at times whole mountain/hill sides
are peeled off.
At dinner - as guests of Kozula city - our host overheard that I during
the run prefer limonade for tea. I expected a correction as tea allmost is
a 'must' here in Russia as in the UK.
Instead, 2 min. later, there was a packet with 12 liter limonade at my
table, presented by the local sportcommitty.
I won't forget :-)) !
For Kazuka, which finished after dinner, there was several packets of food
and hot soup.
Its difficult not to like the Russians :-)
