.. and at the end of it (or the middle, I can’t remember already) we have to queue to pay a toll of 300 rubles. Suggestions of what the toll guys should actually be doing are held back and we pay and move on, slowly (pretty sure we are overtaken by every car on the rally this afternoon), as the soft and inviting mud and clay is now a distant memory and replaced by the latest lunar landscape to endure.

This is a timely reminder – please don’t make this suffering in vain – kindly sponsor us via the website in aid of Place2Be – a really worthwhile and necessary charity concerned with the growing problem of mental heath issues in children
