Ice on the lake …. really? That doesn’t seemed to bother anyone else except us. Oh it must be a pretty common sight at this time of the year. The snow and ice are melting away. It is spring time and soon, the ships can once again set sail on this great lake.
We have decided to change our plans a little and make a trip to the eastern shore of Lake Baikal. Our friend at Ulan Ude have suggested this local getaway resort village of Maksimikha and helped to sort out this local marshurtka for us to get there. Before he bid farewell at the bus station, he even slipped a bottle of ‘KBAC‘ (pronouced as ke-vass) in my arms. Beers for the road. Non alcoholic beer, that is, which our kids loved. We too!
