Fun fact: Mongolians don’t believe in addresses. Even in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar, street names and numbers are a new thing, and only formalized for the most major avenues. But outside of the city, even if you knew the name of the settlement you were passing through… good luck finding it on any maps!
There are markers every kilometre, counting down the distance to Moscow. I took a lot of photographs of them, thinking I would be able to look them up later and pinpoint my location. Turns out, if there is a magical Trans-Siberian milestone database… I can’t find it! So, now I have a bunch of useless photographs of signs with numbers on them.
