Monument for aviation in Samara, near Wolga
The center of Samara is quite pretty and has a european look, including a pedestrian area.
My host family in Samara, Dasha and her mother. Mother owned two shops selling handbags.
   
   
   
On the way to Ufa near Samara. Here I got some serious competition from locals as well as other experienced long distance hitchhikers coming from the festival.
Finally I got a long ride taking me through Samara region into Tatarstan till the border of Bashkiria, near the city Oktyabrsk.
