Pevek - the city at the edge of our vast country. It is located in the Chukotka region, and is the northernmost city in Russia. Once there lived 13 thousand people, now according to various estimates from 3 to 5 thousand. In the 1990s and 2000s, the city is rapidly dying out, everyone who could, tried to get out of here at any cost. Now the population has stabilized, but life here is very difficult.
And to add a little winter-ka in the autumn and summer photos :) Looking forward, so to speak ... In April 2011, we went skiing in Dombai in Karachay-Cherkessia. Although it took a half years, but I want to share a brief impressions and landscape photography - there are very nice. So what that the photos on tsifromylnitsu made ...
Novoulyanovsk - satellite Ulyanovsk (20 km), which grew in 1957 year around the cement plant, the construction of which was announced Komsomol building.

If in the Primorsky district Peter go on Seaside Avenue, and then in the Primorsky highway, then sooner or later you can get to the town of Primorsko. The road goes along the shore of the Gulf of Finland through the spa towns, between Resorts and hotels, and further more a hundred kilometers of the Leningrad region (the Karelian Isthmus). Mostly it will be absolutely impassable and broken-down as we passed.
The next Spring Fever craving for wild wanderings dropped this year for the period from 6 to 13 May. Went together with a friend on his shnivy, but without a dog - I regretted it, old man, still 14.5 years - not a boy already.
The morning greeted quiet, overcast weather. Dima went to work and asked that if I shall be going to leave, to call him, that he would come to pick up the key. And yesterday we were with this man did not know about each other. In normal people are the norm. If you can help a person, and you do not complicate it too much, why not.
At that time, in September 2011, I slowly wandered along annuals Bilibin Pevek. Everything you need with you and was, until the weather permitted, finishing the season with geologists, it was a sin not to walk on Chukotka, at least until its northern coast.
Kamchatka! Probably not in Russia a man who would not hear of it. This, of course, because in almost every village and certainly in each class has its own "Kamchatka". It does not just far away (in Russia there is, thank God, and far away places). Kamchatka - it is an amazing and fantastic world where high mountains, clean, full of fish rivers, mysterious geysers - in a word, the kingdom of Far Far Away, but despite the popularity of the word, very few people were there who saw firsthand the fire-breathing, mountainous peninsula.
