On todays highly scenic small contry roads we passed one of this regions
largest coalmines. No surprise as Borodino is a central city for the coal
The escavation of the cole is mainly done in the form of large open mines
like the one we saw today; about 1 1/2 sq.km wide, about 100m deep -
worked by dinosour like engineer machines!
But Borodino also has a strong sport tradition, especially in wintersports
and is hometown to ski biathlon (ski shooting) olympic champion Olga
This interest in sport we clearly felt at the meeting with the city's
sports committy at yesterdays finish.
We were offered accomodation at the "Sports Hotel" with all meals, and
they even insisted in supplying us very well for the next days of running !
- This kindness and friendly help comes at a very lucky time as we
ofcourse are concearned by the problems of Kazuka. Therefore it was a
delight to see that the sport committy president himself waited for Kazuka
with warm food and friendly interest ! :-)
Todays accomodation: back in the tents with the mosquitoes, flies and
grasshoppers (its apparently their season now).
But that is part of the run as we like it :-)
