A tram to go outside the city center. I walked to a gas station where i met a guy who worked there who helped me to find a car. I could speak the basic stuff in Russian with what i learnt for my few days spent in Saint-Petersburg. The guy is from Uzbekistan. Big heart. He gave me his contacts and adress in his country. He found for me a car with one guy who is something like 27 years old. He was quite surprised and excited by our meeting. We spoke a bit and he left me on the road 50 kilometers further.
When drivers speak a bit english, i ask them to teach me some russian to improve my language skills.
Then a driver from Azerbaijan who spoke only russian, not a single word in english gave me a lift. He gave me his contacts as well in his country. He is Nurlan. A police man. We spoke about cars and different stuff with what i could say in russian.
From a gas station a car stopped and brought me a few kilometers further. I walked under a thin rain and then a man gave me a lift to Velikiy Novgorod.
