We got to Chita, & got the same room I got on my way out. I really love this place. They should make this a chain, & put them about 4-500km apart, all across Russia.
I told Poly I’d take her to the ‘outdoor store’ in Chita to get some warmer clothes. She thought I was talking about a store for outdoor gear, but I took her to the big market.
First, some tall warm socks. These are hand woven from the leg hairs of the babushka.

I like this market, as they have a big ‘junk’ section. I can usually find something at these to fix most bike problems
