1,300 kms and 40 hours in a Cramped Russian Van

To get from Ulaanbaatar to Ulaangom on the other side of the country, near the Tuva region of the Russian Federation, and not far from the border of Kazakhstan, I opted on taking a Russian van from the Naran Tuul market. Passenger count: 15.
I'll post a link of the full grisly story when/if it gets published. For now, here are a few pics.

The driver - who I believe to be an offroad genius.
