Russian Narrative

04-Apr-2004 -- 04.04.04. We started in 16 o'clock from settlement "Ushjarma". In front was 110 km. to settlement "Topar" and to point CP N45E75. The weather was sunny and +20C. On the way we stopped on the canals and lakes, fished, watched birds. The point CP N45E75we found, but not 5th time. We should force one's way through sandy mountains and marshes. In 18 hours 45 minutes we were in the place. But we were surprised! The point CP N45E75 situated in the center the lake. Then we finished to shoot and went home to Almaty. In front was 300 km. Big Thanks to my assistants, to Kristina and Ilya.

Russian Narrative

04-Apr-2004 -- 04.04.04. Стартовали в 16.00 из поселка "Ушжарма" впереди 110 км. до поселка "Топар" и точки CP E45N75. Погода солнечная +20С. По пути останавливались на каналах и озерах, ловили рыбу и наблюдали птиц. На точку CP E45N75 вышли не сразу, а только с пятого заезда. Пришлось пробираться через барханы и болота. В 18.45 были на месте, но вот сюрприз - точка CP E45N75 находится в центре озера. Закончив съемку отправились домой в Алма-Ату, впереди около 300 км. пути. Большое спасибо моим ассистентам Кристине и Илье.
