    Wow, amazing intro. I will definitley be following this one closely! The pics are awesome and 2 things stand out to me right away. First, I find it amazing just how happy the kids look in some of the poorest locations in the world. Not knowing they are missing out on the latest i phone i pod samsung, video game gadgetry. Second, the women look equally as happy and they are so good looking and fit......think I will need to take a cold shower now.

    Looks like one to watch :lurk Been hoping to see how far east I can get next summer, be interested to hear how long this took you. And from Norwich! When I'm not at uni I'm based about 20 minutes outside the city.

    looks like it's up and coming:D

    sorry for highjacking your thread but seems it was a place to leave all BF/GF troubles faaar behind this spring:D:D:D

    definately in to see your impressions and what's more important - pics, as mine have nearly all gone bust when i drowned the main camera crossing the river in highland Azerbaijan:cry

    does anyone look familiar? season '13 opening youknowwhere))

    I must add that one shouldn't miss neighbouring tiny Ingushetia by road, everything is where the road ends)) and another neighbour Dagestan is indeed a heaven for exploring as it's much bigger = more mountains
    the limitations of ATO (anti-terroristic operations, right), locally called KTO, which mean you'll be stopped midway and turned around, are easily bypassed with some local help and then you can enjoy this
