Having just returned from the Southern Urals TRAVELSAPIEN can attest to the rebirth of wooden architecture especially in new churches being constructed. Throughout the old "secret" zones the wooden log construction in homes in many villages looks very much like the Canadian Hudson Bay construction concepts. Similarity is interesting. As to Southern Urals it is listed as Siberia however it seemed a heck of a lot like Central Canada North Country. It is too bad the issue of radioactity remains. Many areas are restricted due to the ecological mistakes made in the past. The people seem to take it all in stride and simply suggest that life will go forward. From what TRAVELSAPIEN could see it is. Chelyabinsk a vibrant rebirth with many interesting opportunities in the new economy. Trust Russians will take advantage accordingly. By the way pickled Russian mushrooms WOW Nice. Could it be the radioactity? (lololololo) KIdding. Everyone should visit this incredible area. Many lakes, Sweeping landscapes, Great motorcycle riding country. YES The roads are great!
