Question: Where to buy food and if there is sale of ready-to-cook food?
Answer: We have a supermarket where you can purchase products and ready meals. But such food might be not in your style, as Russian cuisine appeared to be quite original.

We have started a new project. It’s the installation of the Kolyma monument dedicated to the people, who had been developing the territory of Kolyma. Without deviding people into groups based on right-wing or guilt, gulag victims or people, who arrived at their souls’ summons.
In short, the Monument will be dedicated to all, who developed or are developing our beuatiful, but tough region.
Our Kolyma Monument page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MonumentKolyma.
Currently, we have the Monument design. On May 7th, we with friends are heading to the Kolyma Highway to look for the installation place.
Meanwhile, we suggest to see the initial outline (the above photo).

Short answers to short questions from blog visitors:
1. Is it possible to get to Magadan by train?
No. The railroad to Magadan was not constructed. To get to my place is possible by plane or sea or on your own vehicles.
2. Is it possible to load a car on a ship, that goes to the U.S.A.?
We don’t have ships sailing directly to Alaska. Mostlikely, it’s better to ship vehicles to Vladivostok and then to Alaska.

These Romanian guys had a great motorcycle ride from Romania to Magadan last year. They made it through the Road of Bones and installed the memorial tablet dedicated to the Romanian exiles repressed in the time of Stalin’s regime. Good fellows! Not so many devote their expedition to the victims of GULAGs.
