Glorious! A short day! Only 326km to ride!

This gave David the opportunity to take the time to stop and 'play' with his drone so we when we saw a village about half a kilometre off to the north of the highway we turned off to explore it and for David to launch the drone and get some really cool footage of life in rural Russia.

We were particularly taken with the local shop; the only shop in town.

David and I bought an ice cream each from store; which was 'staffed' by a young woman who was particularly shy about being photographed.

Another long day on the open road.

Vast plains of grass reminded us a lot of the steppes we had encountered earlier in our trip across Siberia while forests of larch and other Russian natives provided welcome relief from the seemingly endless miles of waving grass.

Some images from the road.

As usual, we stopped a number of times along the way; either for fuel or just a break from the seat and some refreshments.
