One ride got me to the first police post on the M-53 just outside Khabarovsk direction Vladivostok.

The nature in this area has a different look&feel, different vegetation and lots of small jaunty hills called 'sopki', a local word.

At the next police post near Viazemski, the police was actively checking papers of all freshly purchased japanese right-wheeled cars moving in considerate numbers from Vladivostok to Siberia.

A friendly guy named Victor, who took me to Bikin, took my photo underway.
Victor himself. He worked as a guard on railway stations and told me some interestings facts about the area.

His car with an advertisement for a japanese love-magazine.

At the next police post, near Bikin, some wrecked cars were stationed as a warning against reckless driving.

The nice thing about sudden showers on a sunny day is the inevitable rainbow that comes with it.

On my command, the road police ordered this former american DHL truck to take to take me to Ussurisk, some 450 km further.
