Contrasts of lake Baikal: Part 2 — Life in villages of Transbaikalia

Contrasts of lake Baikal: Part 2 — Life in villages of Transbaikalia

This is continuation of the photo report from Transbaikalia about life in small villages on a lake Baikal shore. This time we are going to see some photos of strange desolate villages located near the lake. Some of them seem really deserted; a lot of abandoned buildings and houses, no roads, no even cattle. Only God knows what people are busy with and what they do for the life there..
