We take the ferry boat in Kerch to cross over to the Russian boarder, it takes us only 25 minutes. Then we spend nearly the whole day at the Russian border control in Kavkas. Our bus has not the necessary papers from Italy and is not allowed to enter into Russia without these papers. It’s clear that we are in problems now.

Two German-Kazach people happen to hear us speaking and offer their assistance. We are sooo lucky! They do the impossible and organise an official translator and also an official local certifying notary. After hours of waiting and translating and stamping – hours that they stay beside us all the time – Fisch gets his papers for the bus and is allowed to enter into Russia.

Thank you, spassiba, danke! It is so great to meet people who just help you. We learn that their names are Renat and Olga Wagner and that they run a little hotel in a  nearby town, Anapa. We decide to stop in Anapa overnight and stay in their hotel. I am grateful that people like them exist on our planet. They do! It’s good to know that there are great people in this world!
