Travel pillow… I will agree there, in some conditions for some folks, however solely as a result of I pack a decently sized towel. Makes an important blanket or impromptu pillow.

It is the island where, in the myths, Theseus landed with Ariadne, the princess of Knossos after they had left Crete when the volcanic explosion on Santorini drove them all away. Sadly Ariadne ran off with the celebrants of Dionysos and that is the last Theseus saw of her. This time after I’m there I have to keep in mind to visit that specific sanctuary and see if I can conjur Ariadne’s spirit.

I expected desolation in a savage, absurd wasteland, and as a substitute I discovered mediocrity with a number of bits of Disneyfied ‘Asia’ scattered around. Maybe Elista was once as described within the book, but now it feels much nearer to the Russian mainstream, with the addition of a Mongolian consulate and giant golden temple.

I used to be searching for the Elista that Kalder described – an Elista which, if it ever existed, seems to have now moved on. I am glad for the Kalymk people, and I am happy to have seen the truth … Read More
