DEC 20, 18 .. Part 1 of 3 .. Shushenskoye ( Шушенское ) .. WHERE CAPTAIN?

Mike and I, along with two friends here in Abakan, made a trip today to visit the Sayano–Shushenskaya Dam* which is said to be the highest dam in Russia.

*I am not going to discuss our visit to the dam in this Post. Suffice-it-to-say I was sadly mistaken when I said previously that it was North of Abakan. 

I am able to read the road signs and when I saw the below sign..



I said to my three cohorts, "Hey! We are on the road to Kyzyl ( КЫЗЫЛ ). That means we are SOUTH of Abakan!"

The three of them sort of did a ho-hum, and said quizzically, "Yes. You are correct Cap." 

The Sayano–Shushenskaya Dam IS SOUTH of Abakan.

If you go to dot.net you will see a map showing the location of the dam and Shushehskoe.

En route to the dam, we stopped for lunch in Shushenskoye ( Шушенское ).

Trust your Captain here, I am NOT going to expect any of you to remember Shushenskoye ( Шушенское ).

It was a great lunch stop and I decided to share it with you.












What did all of this food cost? U.S. $6.33.


Below is Alexander, our point-man here in Abakan.


That's all for today Sports Fans.

  1. All that good looking food for $7. Amazing. Looks like a place where you likely had many options to choose from for what to eat. Nice lunch stop. Hugs. Patti

    1. Alexander's wife sent along a lunch for the three of us. That lunch was what was in the plastic bowl. I don't think any of us touched her lunch gift.

    1. Gord you aren't going to find it on the map. At least I haven't been able to do so. It is amazing that the dam does NOT seem to have impounded a reservoir of any significant magnitude. Smiles .. Cap
