|Early morning fishing in Astrakhan...oh, and getting a tan.|
It has been amazing to see how the landscape changes from the mountains of Southern Kazkahstan, to the desert steppe, to the desert tumbleweeds, to the rolling green hills of Southern Russia. It provides me plenty to think about like why are the roads so horrible in Kazakhstan and not in Russia? I do keep myself entertained by listening to my ipod (on shuffle), however this does not take away from all my random thoughts.
