God and Deegi both have a real sense of humor. This entire deal was set up by Deegi.
I am staying two nights with Sergey, a friend of Deegi and Saina, in his apartment here in Ulan-Ude.
I was wondering how I would see Ulan-Ude.
These are photographs of an Ulan-Ude taxicab.
Sergey owns, and drives, his own taxicab. So I am with a professional cab-driver who will show-me-around Ulan-Ude. Too funny.
We met Sergey at the edge of Ulan-Ude and followed him to his apartment building.
Ah-h-h-h S-o-o. I guess I will have no problem finding things I want to find here in Ulan-Ude.
Good News. Sergey really knows Ulan-Ude.
Other News. This is the humorous angle. Sergey doesn’t speak on word of English.
In Ulaanbaatar, I live in some fear of the elevator NOT working.
No problem here with any anxiety about the elevator.
No problemo ‘Zilla. Zero. Zip. De Nada.
I am two nights in a second floor, cold water, walk-up. 42-count-them steps. Two full flights of 18-steps (9 + 9) after the entrance flight of 6-steps.
Artwork on the landings. See it below on the left at the landing.
“We got it Captain. No need to show the other three flights.”
Sergey’s entrance door.
A little ‘arctic entryway’ here in Russian Siberia!
Straight ahead as you enter is the kitchen.
A kitchen at-my-disposal.
I have my very own bedroom, all to myself.
Monster, full-King size bed.
Oh My. Who told the Bobbsey’s they could all jump out of their bags?
Beyond the curtains is a small balcony that I show further below.
Sergey (below is his master bedroom) visited friends last night so Deegi and Saina and Cindy could sleep here in his room.
A washing machine, at-my-disposal.
“Yes Cap you sure can do a load of washing.”
Dress shirt. White jogging trousers. Underwear. Nice!
Sure. As long as I am doing a small load, I’ll throw in the wash cloths as well.
“Thanks Dad. We are enjoying the scenery here in Ulan-Ude Russia Dad.”
I have a small balcony outside my room. Hi Cindy.
Now looking out above, I am going to ‘pan to my right’.
Life in an apartment building here in Ulan-Ude in the South and Eastern part of Russian Siberia.
I get to experience it.
