The old road to Chita: A gravel track through clean, silent nature. One
empty steppe and forest valley after another.
At the same time its evidence of the problems that has hit especially the
remote regions. After the system change the state no longer provides the
structure of the economy; and initiative to seek new ways of income has
not been encouraged.
- The result is valley after valley of overgrown 'once cornfields',
villages with rusting away farming machines and streets populated by a few
cows eating what they can find.
In a way these highland valleys remind a lot of the prairie. Only this
prairie has been left behind and is waiting to be re-found.
