3 relocations Europe – Asia per day (Rostov – Atyrau)
14 May 2011, 07:25.
But now, at a distance of 1200 km, it was the first time to make 3 relays a day.
At last we started moving and we are already racing along Western Kazakhstan. Before that I was already in Kazakhstan, but in the East, here for the first time. The steppe or semi-desert, not a single tree, resembled Kalmyk, but almost without vegetation. On one side of the road there were sometimes low low-plastered mud huts,
Before the trip, about Atyrau (new name of Guryev), there was not a very positive opinion. Even in the former USSR, the little town wore the title of an endless cloaca. With bad roads, broken houses, dirt and garbage. From the windows of the houses lying on both sides of the Ural River, to the insolent were thrown the cross-roads with dozens of hooks and mass harvesting of sturgeon. It was very difficult to combat this poaching, until one rationalizer came up with a wire stretching from both sides of the river for 4km (the length of the river in the city). Such was the business card of the city before. Also my friend was in Atyrau about 10 years ago, by the time nothing has changed …
At the Kazakh border, we were offered exactly the same course. And we found it to be too low, and we caught it. Further it was necessary to pay in cafe and shops at a course from 4,0 to 4,5. In the villages they did not change anything and did not sell the rubles. In Atyrau, too, rubles were not the entrance. “Marriott” was a condominium. There they got information about a triple of good hotels in the city – Renaissance, Akzhayik and Atyrau.
We were advised to begin with Akzhayik, located on the left bank of the Urals (Zhayik). They went there. The prices there were not weaker 23000 tenge for a double, but there was not one free number. From reception all good hotels rang, places were only in the Renaissance at $ 300 for a single … Ohrenet. Only a few foreigners hung around the Akzhayik hall, most of the Indians working at the start of the oil refinery. Finally found singles in the hotel Zhastar at 6000 tenge for 12 hours before the morning.
By evening we were in Astrakhan and immediately drove to the base “Fortress”, located on an island near the village of Khmelevka. The island was moved by ferry across the Volga’s sleeve at night rate of 60 rubles per car and after 5 minutes we drove up to a pretty complex on the river bank, stopped.
in the big house. On the ground floor there is a large hall – a restaurant, a ten-meter swimming pool, a sauna and a kitchen.
The wetting rain spoiled all fishing the next morning. Catch a penny, and soaked to the skin. Then they warmed themselves with vodka at breakfast. By evening the weather began to recover. Fishermen from our and the nearby base on the motorboats set off down the Volga to the Caspian, and we just took a punt and moved to the opposite shore, where they anchored in the most reeds. Ten minutes to silence. And then, like a prickle: a roach, a weasel, a scoundrel, periodically these herbivores were driven off by the perch, which also perfectly clung to the hooks. Then again roach, carnal fetish. Half a bucket was pulled out in an hour and a half and drove to the base to have supper. Dinner from this svezhak was excellent. In the morning at six in the morning I repeated catching, again there through the sleeve. But they became a little farther from the shore and this gave the result – the fish went bigger … The quantity was, like yesterday, but the quality is much better. It was a shame to return in an hour and a half, with good biting. Nikolai did not take the life jacket, and I put my own under the ass, and was very chilled. I had to return. Next, all in a circle – the ear, zhareha and salt turned out. In general, they returned tired, but satisfied. By the way, almost all the fishermen who returned from the Caspian Sea had a similar catch for spinnings and donkeys, that we are on 2 primitive floats.
In Elista not spend the night, but drove through the center, taking the world’s most western hural (Buddhist temple). He really impressed in size and shape. On the night of 22 to 23, having moved Voroshilovsky Bridge, again returned to Europe after a short but very busy trip.

For about 20 years, I do not remember exactly, the border between Europe and Asia began to go as follows: By the Ural Mountains. the Ural River, the Caspian Sea, the Kumo-Manichesky Basin, the Manych River, the Don River, the Azov Sea, the Black Sea, the Bosporus Strait, the marble sea and the Dardanelles. Before that, the Caspian Sea was also moving along the Main Caucasus Ridge and it seems along the Kuban River up to the Azov Sea and further, as it is now. so that 1 is the intersection of Don. Manych and 3 Urals.
