North to the Russian border
Beautiful bus stops
Happily used for shade
Plenty of places to loose your money along the road in Kapshagay
Early morning in Taldykorgan
One-man road crew
Fish for sale along the road
Also known as Semipalatinsk...
...where between 1949 and 1989 the Soviets exploded 460 nuclear bombs...
...just west of the city
"Stronger than Death" memorial for the victims of the nuclear tests
In need of repairs
Filling up the water tanks at the community well
The road to the Russian border takes us through a rare forest...
...and great smelling wildflower meadow
The border to Russia
