RUMBLE IN THE CAGE

RUMBLE IN THE CAGE

ABAKAN

From Krasnoyarsk Emre and I moved to Abakan.
Abakan - is the capital city of the Republic of Khakassia, Russia with area about 120 sq km and about 190.000 inhabitants.

Ivan is a local citizen, a co-founder of a sushi restaurant and a member in the Baptist's church. Thank's to him we saw a nice sides of Abakan. We have spent 5 days in that small and calm city, where we also met with 6 shamans...
