|Day 7. Ishim - Omsk|
The weather and road are back to normal, and it feels good. Not much to write about the ride - still endless woods and wheat fields.
The city of Omsk, however, looks great. Broad streets, large squares with lots of flowers, shiny church cupolas, well dressed people. It is sometimes called "the third capital of Russia".
Very interesting memorial plaques on historical buildings.
Among other Omsk streets named after all kind of revolutionaries, as well monuments to those who fought the bolsheviks.
Although I intentionally do not name hotels and restaurants on the route, I cannot help mentioning the two we visited in Omsk. Hotel "Malibu" amazed us all with cleanness, size and luxury of the rooms, and excellent service. Another round of applauds to restaurant "Base" - perfect setting, great food.
