No reaction.. Not even looked at me. I have asked 4 to 5 cars but no one going towards Biysk I am waiting here in this petrol station God please help.. I will be late if i don’t get car Will be big problem I have sent 2 to 3 couchsurfing request They haven’t accepted yet Hope they will accept. If they don’t, then i will book hostel in Biysk I have asked so many cars. But no one Going so far till now I will have to go approx 400 KM Michael helping me a lot He works here in this petrol station He is asking all the cars I am waiting for a car who drops me. Till now asked 10 to 12 cars. But no one going there He is not going towards Biysk This is Puma jacket This has purchased from Decathlon You can wear during hiking Also can be wear during tracking So, all put together 5 KG extra i am wearing now Because here its very cold So, i have got the lift I have got 1st lift of my hitchhiking He will take me to Biysk Zana & Uri with whom i am travelling today Very beautiful road and country Very beautiful road Let me show you the full journey Both the sides of the road has forest In between very beautiful road This is Ozero lake You will get Fish here In Russia driving happens on left side But i have seen in Novosibirsk Many cars have right side steering Don’t know why ! Half of the cars have right side steering too Traffic rule could have been little better This should not be allowed If you have right side steering then You should occupy the left side of the road But right side steering car crossing from left side Which is bit risky Ideally in Russia left side steering is allowed But in Novosibirsk, they allow right side steering too. Altai kari province starts from here So now we have entered Altai Krai Altai kari is a province From here you will get Altai Mountains, Then if you go straight Tashanta Can reach Mongolia I want to explore this areas By flight to India on 12th Today is 9th If time permits i will explore all For the time-being i am Enjoying this areas Now going to Biysk.
