Team 2 has made it to our half-way point in the Altai.
The permit fun continues with two very similar forms for entry to the Altai Republic, one acceptable, the other one apparently not. Common sense and pragmatism do not prevail here and so it’s back to our half-way point and back again this morning to fill in more forms. What fun! We should get to base late tonight to forget about bureaucrats and drown our sorrows in snow leopard survey work for a week or so. You have to laugh or you’d have to cry 😉
Update from our snow leopard conservation expedition to the high mountains of the Altai Republic in Central Asia
