Pole to Pole
Day 32: Novgorod to Dno
It's a subdued team that sets off from the Palace of Culture to drive sixty miles south-west to pick up the Leningrad-Kiev express at the town of Dno. Dno, in Russian, means literally the bottom, the pits. Three hours later we are completely lost. Total darkness and the lack of anything resembling a road sign have completely floored our drivers, who are all Muscovites, and know nothing of these marshy flatlands.
Eventually, negotiating country roads by a process of elimination, we bump into and over what miraculously turns out to be a railway track.
