Back in Russia

Kosh Agash > Barnaul with a stopover in the Altais 698km

Walking the lanes of the town in search of an open cafe for breakfast – they are quite late starters around here.

We had heard a lot about this road, and it certainly didn’t disappoint – so enjoyable, so beautiful, great biking road.

Stayed in a little log cabin in the trees in a resort area beside a river, which was pretty swollen, again we missed the rain although we had a storm overnight.  Very nice place with good food.

Open air restaurant

Not only the lovely staff but also another guest trying to help us with the menu.  Tricky when there are no pictures and the translator doesn’t always work.

Barnaul – we plan to stay here for about 3 days just to catch up on admin etc before heading off on the next leg of our travels

Lots of shady streets

This says Barnaul – getting pretty quick at recognising place names in the Russian alphabet now.

Another thunder and lightening storm brewing tonight, thankfully we are tucked up on our hotel.

      It certainly is nice to stop and just stay in the same place a few days 🙂
