The stone road.

We are on the border, the sign wellcome us in all sixteen languages of former republics of Soviet Union.

On a newer maps LAND OF THE WOLVES appears like a big gap. Deserted towns, villages as well as the roads removed from maps. They do not want some occasional driver to appear on roads which may not be environmentally safe.

The borderline is wide. The land is not worth fighting for it. If we take from main road and travel along the borderline, we'll pass through dead villages and will never know in which country we are.

We travel as long as asphalt road last and then leaving vehicle and continue walking by foot. No need to worry about leaving car or motorcycle, no one will find it, there are as many chances to meet someone here as to meet someone on Antarctica.

Road sign show the distance to some village.

This is the nestling box. Starlings flew away long time ago.
