Here is some news from the land of sputniks.
!0 days ago I was in Volgograd to find out the possibilities to visit
Kap Yar. Kap yar is an open village with cafe etc.
But Znamensk is still closed town (ZATO)But I was not arrested when I
was taking pictures of the KPP (gate)and the procedures.  Some
pictures from the wall surrounding the town anf
d some road signs, were enough for the fisrt time. I know now how to
go there and the price.Like I was at the gate of Baykonur and Svobodny
last year.
On the way back again by bus I stopped in Saratov to photograph the
Memorial at the landingsite of Yuri Gagarin.
Yeaterday we had a great party here in Korolov were they opened the
new Sputnik monument at Kosmonaut prospekt Everybody important was
there (from korolov) Daughter of Korolov < staff of Energya and a
busload of Veterans. I was with my 61 years the youngest in the bus.
