Tuva, Siberia, and Moscow - elkins
While taking us out for a day in the Tuvan countryside, Алдар Тамдын (pictured here) brought us to a camp of yurts he built, one of which had a restaurant in it. He ordered us sheep's head soup and boiled blood. Алдар also builds musical instruments, carves totems for shamans, and hunts bears. Did I mention he recorded a record with Lou Reed? Tuva's Minister of Culture happened to be eating at the restaurant when we arrived, and Алдар introduced us.
