Tuvan smiles

Back on asphalt near Solchur / Khandagayty, and it was a relatively quick run up to Chadan. The main road west from Kyzyl runs through Chadan.

All business seem to be run by women in Tuva, because the men are permanently drunk. There are a lot of reports from foreigners (quite alarming since almost no foreigners get there in the first place) of being robbed, mugged or assaulted by drunk Tuvan guys. We were warned extensively in the Altai that sane people dont go to Tuva - its too dangerous.

Here are a couple of shop girls in Chadan ... (they dont smile much in Tuva, this is about as good as it gets)
