The reason I am writing about the food is that it has taken its toll on me. Some days I can't get enough energy for biking from the meagre options available for me to eat. On top of that, I think I've been moderately dehydrated, which makes it very hard to take in dry camp foods such as oats or bread.
While waiting for a bus with a luggage rack on the roof (for my bike), we attracted a lot of attention amongst the local kids. Some were polite enough, but others obviously enjoyed calling us names we did not understand. A couple of them even swiped two of my bungee cords when I was loading my bike onto the bus. I angrily confronted them with my limited Russian (basically, repeating 'Where? I have! Where? I have!' and pointing to the remaining cords). A nearby adult understood what was happening and forced the kids to return the stolen items. I managed to get one of the back, but they played dumb about the other. Consider it a souvenir, you punks.
