Рассказ по-русски

English narrative

14-Nov-2004 -- The point 45N 77E is located between small sand dunes of the Saryesik-Atyreu desert. The dunes are covered by grasses and small saxaul bushes. The entire road to the point is run through the desert, the last few kilometers we leave the road and drive directly through dunes and bushes. Many shepherd's sites in the desert are now destroyed, the roads are visited only by hunters. CP 45N77E is located on a big bush of saxaul, next to which we had refreshments.

Рассказ по-русски

14-Nov-2004 -- Точка 45N 77E расположена среди невысоких барханов пустыни Сарыесик-Атырау. Барханы поросли травой и редкими кустами саксаула. Вся дорога до точки проходит по этой пустыне, последние километры приходится ехать вообще без дороги. В пустыне много старых стоянок чабанов, но почти все они разрушены. В самой точке растет куст саксаула, возле которого мы и расположились на обед.
