Great batalay 2013-05-21 15:05

Hello Maria,

I believe this is "Tuva," a city I've wanted to see for a very long time. In the 1980s one of the greatest physicists of our times, Richard Feynman, put the city his bucket list. Then several years ago my dentist and good friend, Preston Burns, was visiting me at my home, he saw the book about Feynman on my bookshelves, "Tuva or Bust,", and immediately made arrangements to visit it. I will share this photo with him. At that high altitude, when the sun is out, the sunlight must be intense, just as these colors reveal. The photo features wide open fields, and complementary colors of red and green. Meanwhile, I urge you to click on the link above.

Warm regards,


Warm regards,

It lies in the geographical center of Asia, in southern Siberia
